The learning from the seminar on DFC by the delegates from the different Hijas de Jesus educational centers was deepened in the meeting facilitated by Mother General, Sr. Maria Inez Furtado, F.I. She directed the group to a deeper reflection using the practical steps of the DFC. She engaged the delegates from the various provinces where Hijas de Jesus educational centers are found. She threw the challenge, necessity, and possibility of realizing a dream of networking for universal humanization through education with the objective to determine the primary steps forward towards educational integration networking with all Hijas de Jesus educational centers at a universal level.
The group was able to come up with diverse recommendations to achieve the said objective where the point of convergence was the desire to stay connected, through networking and sharing resources using the Hijas de Jesus international website as a platform. This ignited the enthusiasm to maintain a culture of sharing that transcends diversities and respects contextual realities. The reflective integration was culminated with a joyful note and hope for universalism that is faithful to the spirit and charism of Mother Foundress, St. Candida Maria de Jesus.
