Oblate Fr. Hank Lemoncelli
Who is he: Study assistant at the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life (CICLSAL)
Lives in: Rome, Italy
Sr. Camille: What brought you to the LCWR assembly in Houston?
Lemoncelli: For years Sr. Sharon Holland, who worked in this congregation [CICLSAL], represented it at the annual assembly. The year of her departure Sr. May Wright from Australia was sent as a representative from the congregation. At the moment there are no native English speaking sisters working at the dicastery, so I have been sent as the representative for the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life.
How would you describe the LCWR assembly?
I found the gathering very fruitful. The presentations were truly inspiring as was the manner in which the leadership and facilitators guided us through each day. There was a good spirit of communion manifested throughout the entire assembly. The Eucharistic celebrations and moments of prayer truly enhanced our time together.
What are you doing in Rome?
I am presently a ‘study assistant’ for the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life.
