Provincial Congregation of Andean América

January 3, 2019

Dear Sisters,

Surely you are eager to receive some news about what is happening in the PCAA.

We can tell you about the first steps.


We spent December 28 and 29 in retreat, preparing our hearts for the task entrusted to us by the Lord. Fr. Rodolfo Abello, Colombian Jesuit, accompanied us.

On the 30th and 31st we combined the study of the working norms of the PC with rest and enjoying each other’s company.


On the 30th, Feast of the Holy Family, we celebrated the Eucharist with the people. It took place at the assembly hall of Colegio Reina de la Paz, which serves as the parish on Sundays for its space and facilities. The laity organize everything with much care and commitment.

At 6 p.m. on the 31st we had the Eucharist for the end of the year at home, participated in by the whole community of Reina de la Paz. Afterwards, we shared supper and then had our thanksgiving prayer at the chapel. It was very well prepared by the provincial government. We ended the day with festivities to close the year and wait for 2019.



On January 1, Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, we had the Opening Mass of the PC. At 3 p.m. we had the first session which declared the PC legitimate. This was followed by the election for the different PC offices which would facilitate the smooth running of the PC.

Here ends the first report.
