Greetings from the Secretariat for Formation.
Fr. R. Conrad Sciberras, MSSP, from the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life (CIVCSVA Vatican) has sent us a communication, which basically states that:
1. They are arranging a meeting for Religious Formators in Rome, from 8 to 11 April 2015, as part of the Year for Consecrated Life.
2. They have also asked the General Superiors how many Formators from their respective Congregations or Orders will participate in this meeting in order to prepare the logistics and the methodology for the meeting.
3. This information must be sent to CIVCSVA Vatican before January 15, 2015.
The General Secretariat for Formation realizes that time is limited, but would like to gather all the necessary information to forward to the CIVCSVA and also requests that Novice Masters and/or Assistants in the Novitiates of our Congregation participate. After the meeting sponsored by the Congregation for Religious, the Secretariat is preparing to offer a short but intense seminar for Novice Masters and Assistants led by the General Secretariat for Formation, which is also open to other Formators. This seminar will include a visit to the Alphonsian places and a presentation of the General Government’s proposed Basic Program (Core Curriculum) for the Novitiate. The seminar will take place in Italy from 12 to 15 April 2015
Please send information about the number of participants, together with their names and e-mail addresses to the General Secretariat for Formation, specifically to Luis Alberto Roballo, before the 10th January 2015. Our Secretariat will pass this information on to the CIVCSVA Vatican to ensure that places are reserved at their meeting. We also need to look into the possible visa formalities that will be required and to the preparation of the seminar for Redemptorist Formators.
With best regards and many blessings for Christmas.
Luis Alberto Roballo, C.Ss.R.
