CEA meeting in Madrid (Spain)

The CEA meeting of Provincials was held in Madrid from 11-13 April.  The Provincials and the following Delegates were present: Jan Munsters (Holland), Gilbert De Becker (Flanders), Martin Königstein (Germany), Aurelio Cayón Díaz (Iberia), Christian Flottes (France), Jean Bosco Elumba (Africa), Wojciech Kotowski (Poland) and Michael Ruddy (Ireland-England and Coordinator of ECA).  Thomas Sukotriraharjo and Jean Blaise Mwanda represented the General Government.

The first day was spent together with the CEA Economes. The actual meeting took place over two days.  Among the most important points of this meeting were an update on the reality of each Province and Delegation, the transmission and experience of the 39th GC in the Provinces and Initial Formation.  The sharing took place in a climate of trust, openness and mutual listening.  Regarding what was happening in relation to the new ways of being and serving the Church, some Provinces are involved in encouraging new initiatives: the Berlin project with the refugees (Germany), Jerez de la Frontera with prisoners (Spain), reception of migrants (Dublin), the homeless (France).  At the end of the meeting a new Coordinator of CEA was elected.  Martin Konigstein was elected as Coordinator and Aurelio Cayón Díaz as Vice-Coordinator.  The next meeting will be held in Rome from 30 April - 1 May, 2020.
