Transcription of the video message:

Today, the 19th of March 2020, Father General will finally promulgate our General Plan of Formation 2020. This plan was approved during these intensive sessions of March. It is a reason for joy for the Prefecture of Formation and the entire Congregation.

The XXV General Chapter gave us the mandate to review the GPF, and this work started a few years ago. Let me say that it is the fruit of the collaboration of many Claretians around the world.

A big thank you to all of you who have contributed invaluably to this. In a special way, we want to thank Msgr. Leo Dalmao, CMF who coordinated all the work before his appointment as Bishop.

To the formators, formandi, and all of us, the GPF 2020, which favors a holistic and transformative formation, must help us every day to respond to the demands of the mission in our world today. Yes, we are all missionaries in formation.

Good initial formation for the formandi and good ongoing formation for the rest of us!
