Assemblies in Dublin, Liverpool and London
The friars of the delegation of Blessed Agnellus of Pisa of Great Britain and Ireland held a series of assemblies in Dublin (Feb. 13), Liverpool (Feb 15), and London (Feb 17).
There were three major topics in these days, the finances of the delegation (with a report made by fr. David Blowey, the bursor of the delegation), an overview of the proceedings and conclusion of the Congress of Nairobi this past summer (presented by fr. Jude Winkler, the Assistant General of the CFC) and a report on vocation promotion in this jurisdiction (by fr. Paul Miskiewicz, the delegate of the delegation).
The topic of multi-culturality which was discussed in Nairobi has particular significance to this delegation where all of the friaries have men from different provinces and countries. The delegation thus, in a sense, serves asa laboratory on the idea of friars giving a message to the world that it is possible to live together in peace in spite of our cultural differences.
