The Vincentian Family Collaborative Action Program is being given again for Spanish-speaking countries of South America. Vincentian Family members have gathered in Gethsemane Retreat House, run by the Daughters of Charity, in Quito, Ecuador.
The VFCAP meeting started in the afternoon of Sunday 16 October. Participants began with a shared Eucharist and, after dinner, the opening session of the program was given. The Visitatrix of the Daughters of Charity, Sister Ana Maria Maldonado, HC, and Father Marco Valles, CM, representing the Father Provincial, welcomed the Vincentians of the twelve branches of the Vincentian Family present.
During this first day the human aspect of collaboration was considered. Building trust among all participants was sought through exercises. The development of the VFCAP modules will start tomorrow.
Let us ask the Lord to grant us true wisdom so that we can follow Jesus Christ, evangelizer and servant of the poor.
