Now 192 of us from all continents have arrived, despite a strike at the airports here in Rome it is time to fill you all in on what has been happening.

Today we begin the pre-Chapter work starting with the presentations of all 13 Conferences, groups of Provinces - this was led in a very Salesian way by a magician and three clown helpers. While it was light hearted it gave us all a really good look at how extensive the Congregation is and how diverse in culture, language and dynamics...

In the afternoon we all gathered in the Chapter meeting room for a brief introduction given by Mother Yvonne and then went into the 13 commissions. We will be working in these groups a great deal so this was our first get together and an initial introduction too.

I think the pictures tell the tale better than words... we worked very hard finishing with Mass and vespers at 6.45pm!

I will pick up the threads again again on my return.

For those who want a little more detail go to the FMA International website which has a daily update:

Be sure of prayer for all our Salesian Family.
