Bolivia and Peru: on the road to restructuring


From 17 to 21 April, the Units of Bolivia and Peru (North and South) simultaneously held the Regional Assembly in each of their Units. Bolivia at Cochabamba, Peru north at Trujillo, and Peru south at Rímac-Lima.

We addressed specific themes of each Unit, to improve our consecrated life and be “Missionaries of Hope, in the footsteps of the Redeemer” our community life in a changing era.

An important event in the three Units was the election of candidates for the first provincial government of the “Redemptorist Province Bolivia-Peru” and for the Elective Assembly, which will be held in August (Cochabamba – Bolivia). The election was presided over by the retreat, (in Cochabamba in person and in the other Units: virtual) preached by Mons. Eugenio Cotes, Bishop of San Borja – Bolivia.

They were days of fraternal coexistence, which strengthened the bonds of friendship and expressed our fears, doubts, hopes and joys before the restructuring process. We thank everyone for making these meetings possible. We continue to work and move forward towards restructuring.

The Most Holy Redeemer, our Mother of Perpetual Help, all the saints, blessed, venerable martyrs help us on this journey.
