Antioquia, Colombia. From the 27 – 30th of November 2011, at the estate of La Pintada, Antioquia-Colombia, the 5th Year Missionaries of the Province of Colombia and Venezuela met to share, reflect, evaluate, celebrate, and propose ways of conducting this step for the next Provincial Chapter.
Participating were Fathers: Álvaro Arias, Darío Cerón, Alberto Cisneros, Elvy Marcella, Álvaro Marín, Adrián Aquiles and Carlos Darío Prieto; and Brothers: Marcial Gamboa, John Alberto Aguirre and Hernando Rivera.
The personal and pastoral situation of each participant was shared, and various aspects of life from a more committed perspective were brought to light.
On the 29th Fr. Javier Pulgarín, Provincial Superior arrived who exhorted the young missionaries to living a more radical, giving, and responsible life. The participants of the 5th Year Experience shared with Fr. Javier various concerns and suggestions to take into account for a not too distant future.
