fatima1Theme: “Eucharist and Life”

Fatima, April 13-15, 2012

The students and formators of the conference of Iberia (Spain and Portugal) held the annual gathering of “Claretian Week” in the retreat house in Fatima reflecting on the theme, “Eucharist and Life”. There were 36 participants in the gathering: 9 postulants, 18 students, 4 deacons and 5 formators. The intercultural nature of the group of students originating from the four continents (Africa, Asia, America and Europe) has been particularly enriching.

Presentations of papers, group discussions and plenary sessions helped to deepen the understanding of the Eucharistic dimension of our charism. The experience of living together, visit to the Marian Sanctuary and celebration of the Eucharist were enriching moments of growing together in our charism.
