At the beginning of March, 2018, a course for new, French-speaking missionaries began in Brussels, Belgium.
The course was attended by ten friars (OFM and OFM Cap.) from different parts of the world: Madagascar, Chad, Togo, India, Italy and Poland.
During May 15-19, 2018, the friars concluded their course by making a pilgrimage to Assisi and other Franciscan places. On May 15, 2018, they were hosted by the fraternity at the friary of St. Maximilian Kolbe in Rome. During their journey to various Franciscan places, they were accompanied by the Secretary General for Missionary Animation (SGAM), Friar Jarosław WYSOCZAŃSKI, OFM Conv., and Friar Jacek MATYNIA, OFM Conv. Thus, for a while, there was some sharing between the three Franciscan Orders.
At the beginning of September, a course for new, English-speaking missionaries will begin. Our friars from Zambia and the Philippines will participate at that time.
