Assembly of the sisters of the Chile-Paraguay Territory

The sisters of the Chile-Paraguay Territory met in Viña del Mar, from 16 to 19 January 2023, to continue the path of active integration of the sisters of both countries.

At the same time, these were days of formation, in order to continue growing together. We did it especially through two themes that are key in today's Church: Synodality and "Women of the Dawn - the daring hope at the start of dawn" - of CLAR, 2022-2025.

As part of the integration, the work of updating the Statutes of the Territory was continued, enriching them with the document of the Congregation "Dispositions and Norms for a new organization of the Congregation 2018 and modified 2021" and the Statutes of the Latin America Zone. The communities 2023 and the groups of generations of sisters Chile-Paraguay also met to continue the on-going formation, organizing the dates of the next meetings of the current year.

Towards the end of the Assembly an evaluation was made, where the positive aspects of the meeting were recognised and what could be improved for next year. 

A beautiful way to conclude our Assembly was the celebration of the Silver Jubilee of our sisters: Susana Dumrauf and Jovita Campos. A very well prepared celebration, which began with the Eucharist, presided by Alberto Toutin, sscc, René Cabezón, sscc and our Argentinean brothers, Armando Lanzani and Ricardo Sotomayor.  Then we shared a wedding lunch with the participation of some friends of the guests.

On the last day we organised the traditional outdoor walk, this occasion in a campsite in the Quilpué area of Viña del Mar.
