On May 4, 2019 five branches of the Claretian Family met in San Francisco de Macoris (Dominican Republic): Missionaries of the Claretian Institution, Movement of Lay Claretians, Filiation Cordimariana, Missionaries Sons of the Inmaculate Heart of Mary and Nuns of Mary Inmaculate Missionaries Claretian.
The motto of the meeting was “One family and one heart” and we truly enjoyed a family day. We had the presence of Fr. Mathew Vattamattan, General Superior of the Claretian Missionaries, who shared with us a reflection on the Claretian Family’s relations around the world, and encouraged us to continue making the journey together, in a shared mission.
In addition, each branch of the Family shared important events that took place during the last year. May the Lord who gave us this shared charism continue to strengthen our family bonds!
