(Santa Cruz, Bolivia) The meeting of the Redemptorist laity of URSAL was held, from July 16 to 20, 2018, in Santa Cruz Bolivia, with the participation of delegations from Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia.
The purpose of this meeting was to share the decisions of the XXV General Chapter with the objective that they are assimilated and put into practice by all the members of the Redemptorist Family, and for this, a presentation was made by Fr. Enrique López. It has also been attended by Sinay Tovar (Venezuela) who has shared the proposal of the Lay Directory of the Conference of Latin America and the Caribbean, and we have allowed ourselves to be challenged by the Latin American reality that challenges us to commit ourselves in its social transformation, in the political and economic spheres from the perspective of faith.
During the meeting, there was a great feeling of fraternity. Participants shared their work experience and there was a cultural night during the meeting. We also visited the Redemptorist parishes.
We thank the Provincial of the Unit, Father Boris Calzadilla for his hospitality and openness to us lay people. God bless you!
