Meeting with the Sisters Hospitallers of the Sacred Heart

On Saturday, May 19, the Prior General of the Brothers of St John of God, Brother Donatus Forkan, accompanied by the Brothers of the General Government, and the General Curia together with the Superior General of the Sisters of Charity of St John of God, Sister Vimala Mathalikunnel, attended a meeting with the Sisters Hospitallers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus who are celebrating their General Chapter here in Rome. The Sisters have chosen as the theme to guide their reflections: "Led by the Spirit to recreate Hospitality".

The meeting was held in a fraternal and celebratory climate in which the Brothers from the General Council discussed new experiences with the Capitular Sisters, answering the questions raised by the mission of hospitality today, when seeking to cultivate dynamic fidelity to our mission, particularly involving our Co-workers in posts of front-line responsibility in the mission of hospitality.

This was followed by the celebration of the Eucharist at which the General Councillor Bro. Jesús Etayo presided, animated by songs in different languages by the Sisters. It was a meeting that further strengthened the bonds between our Institutes, who share the same Charism of Hospitality in the wake of St John of God and St Benedict Menni.

The meeting ended with a fraternal supper, at the end of which Brother Donatus Forkan thanked the Capitular Sisters for their warm welcome and wished them every success in their deliberations for the good of their mission.
