Visit of the General Government to Bolivia-Paraguay (sisters)

From 2 to 11 March, the General Government of the sisters is visiting the Province of Paraguay-Bolivia. After a "compulsory" time of rest, because of the altitude, the meeting with the sisters of Bolivia started. The Congregation is present in Bolivia 130 years ago.

The visit coincided with the "Martes de Challa" (“Tuesday of Challa), a thanksgiving ceremony to Pachamama for all the good received. It is a festive celebration, where the house is decorated with colorful banners and alcohol and wine is sprayed on the corners of the property. You cannot miss the fireworks and barbecue (“parrillada”).

On March 6, the sisters of the General Government, along with Lilian Bordon, provincial of Paraguay - Bolivia, traveled to Asuncion (Paraguay) to continue the meeting with the sisters in this area. They will visit the community of “El Bañado” and then they will proceed to Ciudad del Este, where the sisters of that area will have the opportunity to meet and discuss with the General Government.
