An important step

10 September 2018

On september 7 in the afternoon, at the doors of the feast of the Nativity of the Virgin, we celebrated the beginning of the novitiate of Jovita Álvarez Alonso. We highlight some words that Maite Garitagoitia, Provincial of the Province of Europe addressed to Jovita: “You take an important step because today you tell us that you want to live and experience our Claretian life in its totality. To discern in depth if this is the way God calls you. We are happy, we thank God and we commit ourselves to accompany you in this way … May you begin to find out the urgency to be Good news for the people like Paris and Claret.”                                                                                                                                    M. del Carmen Martínez

“I’m grateful to the Lord for these last years, but particularly for this time I’ve just started, the novitiate. I hope it will be a special time to discern God´s will and go in deep in the study of claretian charism and life.”

During these days, the text “María Antonia París, friend and companion in the journey” is being distributed.
