Plenary Gathering in Aruba

Written by 

From April 16 to 26, the Superior General and superiors of all our vice provinces and delegations gathered for the IV Plenary Conference in Aruba where Michaelites have ministered since 2003. Aruba, Curacao and Dominican Republic form the Caribbean Delegation of the Michaelite fathers comprised of 22 members. Fr. Andrew, superior delegate from Canada, represented our community. The last day of the gathering took place in Santo Domingo, capital of Dominican Republic, where papal Nuncio presided at Mass commemorating the 100th anniversary of blessed Markiewcz’s death. The church, dedicated to the blessed founder of our Congregation was filled with parishioners and invited guests. During the Mass, the Superior General handed out three ‘Benemerendi’ medals. With songs, laughter, prayer and a wonderful meal we closed our gathering. The next plenary will take place in Australia in 2014.
