Prot. SpR E3/2014
Reverend Superior General,
As you well know, one of the events organized by our Dicastery to mark the Year of Consecrated Life is an international meeting for Young consecrated men and women, which will start on the evening of 14th September and ends on the 19th. The title chosen for this event is: “Wake up the wold! Gospel, Prophecy, Hope”.
We are expecting several thousands of participants from all over the world belonging to Institutes having pontifical as well as diocesan recognition. Those invited to take part include those doing their pre-novitiate and all the intermediate stages up to ten years following perpetual consecration. Booking for this event must be done online: visit our website www.congregazionevitaconsacrata.va; the link Iscrizione Laboratorio gives access to the booking modules in five languages. We ask you to forward this info through the media of your Institute so that as many as possible may come to know about his happening.
As you can see from the note attached to the booking module, we are asking for a token fee of € 10 from each participant. This, obviously, will not cover all the expenses involved. Therefore, we are appealing to the generosity of the Institutes, and thus we are asking you for a free donation. We are confident that the communion of goods among many will help us cover most of the expenses that such an event entails and also to help several young consecrated men and women to come over from the continents.
I thank you for your attention and I greet you fraternally in the Lord,
+ José Gregorio Rodríguez Carballo, OFM
To All Men and Women Superiors General
