It’s rather amazing how quickly one falls into a routine. By now, the schedule is pretty well set: we begin with morning prayer in the new Trinity Chapel at 8:30am and end with mass at 6:30pm, followed by a social and dinner at 7:30. It’s a long day, but we do take several breaks, including the traditional siesta after the 1:00pm lunch.
Each day is a good mix of presentations and small group sessions. And each small group is different, so there is a lot of variety. Kudos to the planning team. This morning, for instance, we were on the theme of Lasallian Formation and Vocation, and we spent time dreaming and scheming about what could be. Lots of creative ideas emerge and are collated.
It’s a joy and pleasure to be reunited with familiar faces and to meet new Brothers as well. Meals, breaks, and socials provide ample time to chat and get both acquainted and reacquainted. And we are always mindful of the task at hand: to set a course for the next few years and the 46th General Chapter. Please keep us in prayer as we do so.
