Pastoral, Compassionate and Spiritual Response to the Challenges of Victims Suffering from Sexual Abuse in Conflict
Workshop in the Democratic Republic of the Congo April 2 to 9
Read April, 3 and April, 6
Thanks for your prayers and support. Some of the participants are hearing from their Major Superiors about the photos on the website.
We can feel the presence of your prayers and support. We also have 5 contemplative communities in the area praying for us.
We continue on with this important work. There is much trust, energy and willingness to learn and share experiences with one another. Sister is writing the reports from 6 groups regarding burning issues and case studies which the participants would like to explore more deeply.The burning issues were summarized into 5 areas and discussed in interest groups.
The leadership team who experienced a training in Montreal at the International Center of Formation on an integral human development presented the process to the group. They used their own personal stories of trauma describing how the experience transformed their lives. The Sisters beautifully lead though a process to read our lived experience with depth. They stressed the importance of being healthy ourselves in order to journey with others.
