February 16, 2023, General Administration, Rome:
The January – February 2023 plenary session of the O.M.I. Central Government has come to an end. This was the first plenary session of the new General Council elected at the recent 37th General Chapter. As one can imagine that session was a learning time for many of them, as most of the members of the General Council are new.
Despite many tasks we worked on during this time, they were also very attentive to build our relations, to deepen their mutual knowledge and to create bonds, which make of them a community.
