Meeting of St. John of God Brothers and Hospitaller Sisters of the Sacred Heart

The first meeting of the Sexennium of the two General Definitories ? the Hospitaller Order of St John of God and the Sisters Hospitallers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus ? was convened on October 29, 2013 at the General Curia of the Brothers of Saint John of God.

The meeting opened with the prayer followed by addresses of welcome by the two Superiors General, and after introducing their General Definitories, the meeting moved on to transact the two main items on the agenda.

 The first item was a report on the priority lines of action laid down by the two Institutes? General Chapters. This was followed by a dialogue and an interesting and enriching discussion which revealed huge similarities between the projects and the animation style of both Definitories.

 The second item had to do with the celebration of the first Centenary of the death of St Benedict Menni who restored the Order in Spain and Latin America, and founded the Congregation of the Sisters Hospitallers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Both Definitories agreed to organise a joint celebration in Rome in October 2014. Two other dates for the celebration of the Centenary were also set: the inauguration will take place on April 24, 2014 at Dinan (France), and on April 24, 2015 the year will be closed at Ciempozuelos (Spain).
