Spain: days of formation
Between the 16 and 20 July, the Spanish provinces held their first Social Training Days bringing together a group of 27 individuals engaged in the social apostolate of the Society in the country. The issues discussed included: the apostolic project within the scope of the history of the Faith-Justice mission, proposed areas of work over the next few years, the current challenges facing the Society outlined in the document, "Invited to Collaborate" by the Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat, the personal experience of Ignatian spiritual growth, and the characteristics of the identity and mission of the works of the social apostolate. It was an intense journey touching upon the present reality, the mission, the people and organisations with which we serve. It left us with a feeling of gratitude, a greater unity in our apostolic and geographic diversity and encouraged us to share the experience and the analysis of the documents in order to continue raising more and more awareness of our shared mission and of the shared responsibility to it.
