ASSEMBLY OF THE CONSTELLATION ROME
Rome, 12,13,14 January 2021
the time of our Annual Assembly is approaching and will be held on 12, 13, 14 January 2021 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For clear reasons related to the continuing Covid 19 pandemic, it is not possible to organize our meeting as usual, so the Assembly will be held online using the UISG ZOOM platform.
The theme: “Fraternity: place of fidelity to the charism and to the mission” which reminds us of the last encyclical of Pope Francis “Fratelli Tutti” and the document “The gift of fidelity the joy of perseverance”, will be the object of our reflection and discussion which will take place in the virtual rooms according to the chosen language: Italian, English, Spanish.
All the General Superiors of the Constellation are invited to participate in the Annual Assembly in the awareness that it is a precious occasion for learning, confrontation, sharing, and a help in living the ministry of animation and government of our Congregations in such a challenging time as the present.
