All the leaders for the promotion of the key of Participation in the Pious Schools, organized by the General Secretariat of Participation and coordinated by Fr. Emmanuel Suarez, Delegate of Fr. General for Participation, are gathered in Oaxaca (Mexico). Thirty two are the people who gathered at the House of prayer “Lindxi Daya” in Oaxaca.

The meeting opened with the celebration of the Eucharist, presided by Fr. Provincial of Mexico. Fr. Juan Antonio Dominguez, Rector of the community of Oaxaca, welcomed all participants, and Fr. General started the work of the meeting outlining the objectives of the meeting and recalling the will of the 47th General Chapter regarding this Key of Life: “To advance on the path covered, deepening in the sharing of our mission and our charism from different vocations and growing communion“. ADVANCING and DEEPENING are two verbs that should mark the work of this meeting of the Order.

Then we moved to the study of the Directory of Participation of the Order, coordinated by Juan Fernando Arroyave, from Nazareth Province and member of the General Secretariat. We studied in an entertaining and participated way the entire contents of the Directory, and we advanced tracks to contribute in the development of all the modalities for participation.

The day ended with a reflection shared on the functions and tasks of the head of participation in each one of the demarcations, a figure that should more defined and strengthened.
