The final series of General Council visits have started

23/02/2005: Venezuela

The General Council met in Los Teques (Venezuela) from the 15th until the 17th February to start the visit to the Arco Norte of Latin America, the last of the regions to be visited before the General Conference. Together with Brother Seán Sammon, various visiting teams participated in the meeting: Emili Turú and Théoneste Kalisa (visiting México Central and Occidental); Luis G. Sobrado and Peter Rodney (visiting América Central); Maurice Berquet and Pedro Herreros (visiting Norandina); Antonio Ramalho and Ernesto Sánchez (visiting the Novitiates and Post-Novitiates of each region).

During the next three months, the teams will visit the communities and apostolic works of each Province, taking the opportunity to interview each brother, to meet with the Provincial Council, with groups of laypeople, with Province animation teams and with Leadership teams of apostolic works, etc. The visit will conclude with the Extended General Council meeting that will be held in Guatemala from the 12th to the 15th May. The four Provincials, with their Councils, will participate in this meeting with the General Council. This final meeting of the visit will be preceded by some days of work by the visiting teams in order to prepare the Reports to the Provinces.
