Suba, Colombia. On February 27, in the house of the Pre-novitiate José Xifré, Province of Colombia Oriental – Ecuador, all the Claretian communities of Bogotá held a fraternal encounter.
The Provincial Superior, Fr. Josué González Jaramillo, CMF, presided the Eucharist and invited all the brothers to be inspired by the biblical text of the vine and the branches (John 15, 1-8) to live the encounter from the interior fruitfulness. Then, encouraged by the dynamics of appreciative inquiry, each one shared his strengths, dreams, and attitudes to improve. In the encounter, organized by Fr. Carlos Bernal, Bro. Guillermo Salamanca and the students of the pre-novitiate of Suba, the intergenerationality of the Claretian communities was highlighted, since the young people of all the formative stages and the Claretian missionaries of the Community of Elders were present.
