Province of Indonesia (Retreat)


From 25 to 30 September 2023, the annual retreat of the Province of Indonesia was held at the Oasis Centre in Batam. It was attended by 40 brothers. At some point during the retreat, two fourth stage Brothers from India, Georges and Victor, who are in Indonesia, joined them. The framework of the retreat was the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the presence of the Congregation in this country. Also reflected on were the themes that emerged from the report of the canonical visitation: the call of Jesus to collaborate with his mission, hospitality to God visiting through the brothers, being a "father" (romo) who cares for the brothers and sisters, welcoming frailties as a grace of renewal, the second call. On the last day, the participants inaugurated a memorial plaque to Rolf Reichenbach, sscc (1931-2004). The final Eucharist was attended to by sscc sisters, including Patricia Villarroel and Aurora Laguarda, who are making the canonical visitation of the Indonesian Territory.  Some members of the secular branch also joined in the final mass.
