2. Continue to contribute to the Commissions of Apostolic Plan and Restructuring.
3. Discuss how we can continue to encourage, facilitate and accompany the restructuring processes that have already begun.
We appreciate the courteousness of the Vice Province of Resistencia, Argentina, and the sharing with the Alumni, with the formators and other members of this these Redemptorist units.
