Formation Meeting at Salta - January 3-9. 2007

A number of FCJ sisters gathered at the community house on Barrio Solidaridad in Salta, Argentina from January 3–9, 2007.

This meeting flowed from the Formation Workshop that took place in Stella Maris in 2006, when it was decided that the Province of the Americas needed to dedicate time to look at our formation process.

Cover of Formation Booklet.Present at the meeting in Salta were: Patricia Binchy, Marguerite Goddard, Anne Morrison, Paula Mullen, Alicia Pérez and Juana Rios. Linking through e mail were Pat Desnoyers, Ellen McCarthy, Bonnie Moser and Joanna Walsh.

The meeting began with a day of reflection on our personal vocation stories
and commitment today as Faithful Companions of Jesus:

“To have this name, Faithful Companions of Jesus
I would give everything, all that I am….”

Constitutions. 34, 35, 36

Later, the group 'brainstormed' questions that arise for us as we consider formation needs in the Province.

We discovered questions that invite and challenge all of us to look at our own commitment; as well as questions/comments/reflections on the stages of formation.  The sisters of the Province of the Americas have been asked to engage a similar exercise, both personally and in community groups, using the relevant sections of the Handbook for Formation as a resource."
