A REPORT ON THE SECOND DAY OF FORMATORS MEETING IN GHANA.

A REPORT ON THE SECOND DAY OF FORMATORS MEETING IN GHANA.

Today on 8th September, 2022 marks the second day of formators meeting here in Ghana Province. The day started very well with the prayer service prepared by Bro. Felicio and conducted by Bro. Aaron. The prayer service was under the theme “formation for consecrated life”. Article 55 of the FIC constitution was read and Gospel reading from Matt 19:16-22. Thereafter, breakfast was taken at 08:00 AM. 

The first session started very well at 09:00 AM. The main focus on this first session was about sharing of formative experiences, both formators of Ghana and Malawi Province. Members expressed their joys and worries freely and honestly. This marked the end of first session from 10:45 AM to 11:00 AM.

The second session continued from sharing of formative experiences and later on initial discussion on curriculum. This went up to the lunch time at half past twelve. The afternoon session began at 3:30 PM after siesta. This session was very interesting as members firstly were asked to construct a tower individually using newspapers and then in groups. This activity was under the topic of profile of formators. Members cracked jokes and laughing at each other as the process of building the tower was in progress. It was a joyous moment indeed. This activity was later on followed by a beautiful and deep input on what kind of formators the Congregation would like to have and it was facilitated by Bro Daru, one of general counsellors.

One of the most interesting things that we got from Bro. Valentinus' presentation was about the the profile of the formators. According to him the core of the profile of the formator shold be as LOVE person. Love is the fundamental aspect needed by a Formator: Listen, Observance, Virtues/Values, and Emphaty. One of the tasks of the Formator is to help a formee to get to know God who is LOVE, so that he is aware that he is loved and for that reason willing to love God and his fellow beings (including nature) through the state of consecrated life.

The day ended with celebration of Mass at 6:30 PM in the chapel.

We thank God for these beautiful experiences and we hope that we continue to have a wonderful time and fruitful meeting that will be beneficial to our Congregation as FIC family, the societies around us and for the glory of God.
