After the network meeting in Kola in the Vice province of Matadi – CONGO (DRC), the confreres and the lay representative present (Lady Judith Agu) begun the COREAM ASSEMBLY. This was an important moment when the members came together to plan and intensify the mission of the Congregation in Africa and Madagascar. During these four days of reflection and deliberations there was an urgent call to re-awaken the missionary strength of COREAM- “The youthfulness of the Conference must be transformed into creativity and pastoral zeal for mission”

In a spirit of shared co responsibility they evaluated COREAM strategic plan by reviewing the steps taken by the proposed different zones, perfecting those that have been taken, and finding reasons for those that have not been implemented in regards to restructuring and reconfiguration.

The Assembly also carefully studied and revised COREAM Statutes elaborated more on the canonical implications in regards to the new proposed Units and evaluated the implementation of COREAM Sexennial Action Plan. Later there were presentations of different reports: the Solidarity office, and the participation and contribution of the laity in our mission.

Fr Rogerio Gomez-Superior General, at the closure of the Assembly, exhorted the members with these words “We are an orchestra following the baton of the Redeemer’s conductor. We are a missionary body, and each of us plays a vital role in this mission. I insist that COREAM must recover its strengths and possibilities”.
