The members of the Provincial Team of Kolkata Province had their annual planning session from 23rd – 26th of January 2015 at Auxilium Dum Dum. Evaluation of the Province project and the Sectors Action Plans of 2014-15 done by the communities on a very positive and appreciative note boosted the members to set off with zest and enthusiasm to commence the preparation of the Province Project 2015-16.
The strenna of the Rector Major, Fr. Ángel Fernández Artime, ‘Like Don Bosco with the young, for the young’, three choices for pastoral conversion of GC XXIII and the suggestions given by the Archdiocese of Kolkata put the members in the streamline. Basing on this, the Team was able to prepare the Province Project as well as the each Sectors Vision and Action Plans. The Province Calendar with the Action Plans of the each Sector was also completed within the scheduled time slot.
General coordinator Sr. Mini Chettayil’s adequate and precise planning smoothened and enhanced the work. Sr. Maria Pettayil the Provincial’s presence on the last day with her contagious enthusiasm in appreciating the work of the Team and her suggestions to ignite the sisters of the Province to be valiant missionaries of the young augmented the spirit of the Team members to do more. The meeting concluded with the message of the Provincial, ‘We are called to centre ourselves on Christ and to be vibrant missionaries of the young always and everywhere. To be effective be holy and Christ like in our dealings’.
