Visit to Teteringen (The Netherlands)

From 22 - 25 September, Alberto Toutin and Derek Laverty are visiting our confreres in Teteringen (The Netherlands), on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the presence of the Congregation in this country.

On the 22nd they attended a meeting of the six religious communities living in the residential complex (Divine Word, Dehonians, Scheuts, Benedictines, Missionaries of Charity and sscc) as well as a Benedictine sister. It was a real time of reunion as the conditions of COVID had prevented any form of social get-together. This was also a time to remember those who had passed away and who continue to support the Church from Heaven. Among the participants present were missionaries who had been in Kassai (Congo), Cordoba (Argentina) and Indonesia, and our confreres in Mozambique and in Portugal and Indonesia. And to continue with the missionary flavor, the food was from Indonesia.

In the evening, Alberto and Derek met with Fr. Avin, provincial of the Society of the Divine Word, who is originally from Kerala, India. They talked about the presence of intercultural communities involving Indian and Indonesian priests on mission in the Netherlands.
