Sr Jolanta Kafka: accompanying the Claretian Missionaries’ General Chapter
The four weeks of the XXVI General Chapter of our brothers, Claretian Missionaries are coming to an end. It has been a process of narrative, synodal and appreciative dynamics. The 78 chapter members have been involved in a process called the “Fifth conversation”.
We were two facilitators, Fr Paulson Velliannoor, cmf from India, currently on the Forge team in Spain, and myself. Once approved by the chapter, our role was to collaborate with the Presiding table and contribute to achieving the objectives of the chapter as broadly designed in in the joined preparation in the preceding months. To encourage the participation and involvement of all, offering dynamics and instruments as well as moments of evaluation and pulse-taking. We have alternated times of group activities and prayerful reflection.
