Objective of the VII Assembly of the Conference of Redemptorist Missionaries

The objective of the meeting was to evaluate the progress since the last assembly, held in June 2019 in Mexico. It also dealt with restructuring and reconfiguring the 23 Redemptorist communities on the continent, which by the year 2023 will be transformed into seven centers.

“As foreseen in the Restructuring Process that our congregation is going through, our mayor goal is to strengthen more and more the Redemptorist mission of being ‘witnesses of the Redeemer.’ In this way, we are ‘in solidarity in the mission’ in our world, where we find so many ‘wounded’ in body, soul, and spirit,” assured Father Inácio Medeiros, Vocal of the Province of São Paulo.

Preparations for the Congregation’s 26th General Chapter

This assembly also had the purpose of preparing the 26th General Chapter of the Congregation. The first phase of this event, at the Conference level, will take place in the National Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida between April 24 and May 4, 2022. The canonical phase will take place in Rome during September. (EPC)
