Dearest Readers!

We present you a great new, recently published on our general webpage. They kindly offer an English translation of this one. There we go!

The Assembly of the Constellation of Rome of the International Union of Major Superiors (UISG) took place on January 9-10 at Monte Cucco, where our sister General, Mª José Gay Miguel was elected to participate as a member of its new Animation Team 2020-2023.

The UISG provides an International Forum where Superiors General can share experiences, exchange information and mentor one another in their role as leaders.

As an International body rooted in Christ, and representing Congregations of Women Religious throughout the world, UISG seeks to witness to and proclaim the identity of apostolic religious life in all of its diversity. Through weaving global solidarity and opening new frontiers we animate, support and stimulate leadership of religious to be a prophetic voice and witness in the Church and the world.

The mission of UISG is to build bridges that span distances, borders and boundaries in order to create ways for members to be in communication, in community and in communion. The purpose of UISG is to promote an understanding of religious life.

In order to facilitate communication, exchange and mutual support, the Superiors General are gathered in Constellations where, in every continent, they incarnate the aim and mission of the Union. The Rome Constellation is made up of more than 190 religious congregations of women who have their General House in the city of Rome, Italy.

Sister Mary Joseph has been always characterized as a woman committed to female religious life. Already during the time that she lived in Chile, she was at the service of initial formation in the Conference of Religious CONFERRE. As Vicar General, she was part of the organizing team of the Congress of Formators of Consecrated Life, organized by the Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life in the year 2015, and now, in her service as General Animator of our Congregation, the Lord entrusts her to continue in this commitment by being part of this animation team of the Constellation of Rome of the UISG.

We congratulate our sister, thanking her for her availability and the passion she puts into each commitment she makes, and we commend in our prayers her service and dedication to our religious family and to the Consecrated Life in this new challenge she is undertaking.
