The Assembly of vocations promoters and educators of the four Circumscriptions of French-speaking Africa took place on September 1-10 in Sarh, Chad. Fifteen confreres including the Secretary General for Formation, Fr. John Baptist Opargiw, attended. The median age of the participants to the sub-continental assembly was slightly over 45 years.

The meeting was a time of sharing and of ongoing formation over three essential aspects of the service of formation: the formation model of integration, the personal project of life and the education documents. The purpose was to walk together towards a common education project as it is suggested by the General Chapter of 2009.


A letter from the Superior General, Fr. Enrique Sánchez González was read at the beginning of the assembly. His message of thanks, of communion and of exhortation to improve the quality of our service in the sector of formation helped us to plunge into our work of these days with renewed enthusiasm.
