XXIV GENERAL CHAPTER OF THE CLARETIAN MISSIONARIES
Welcome to this Chapter community. Our brethren have entrusted us with the mission to discover what the Spirit is saying today to the Congregation and for this they have offered us the results of the discernment they have carried out during this past year in their communities. We have travelled this road together with them………
The Congregation has received, thanks to the Lord of the harvest, a good number of vocations during these years and it has tried to form them according to the project of life which is laid out for us in the Constitutions.
