MADAGASCAR - Intermonastic Association
Project 6489 - Meeting of Superiors
The association of monasteries of the Indian Ocean links the monasteries under the Rule of St Benedict (four Benedictine communities and two Cistercian ones) and also eight Carmels and four monasteries of Poor Clares. In view of the isolation of several communities it is a great enrichment to be able to work together and share the experiences of each community.
The meeting of the association will be held in May 2019 at the Cistercian monastery of Ampibanjinana (Fianarantsoa) and will bring together 18 participants. The sisters will use this meeting to work out the two last texts of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life for nuns (Vultum Dei Quaerere and Cor Orans). They will be assisted by an Assumptionist Doctor of Canon Law, Fr Luis Martin Rakotoanlala, for the elaboration of statutes of the communities which the Holy See requires.
