God is always animating the heart of humans so that it may spring with the best He has imprinted there as his sign: the goodness and the freedom of giving oneself, even the life for others.
We would like to share about how communities are facing this pandemic… we would do it soon. Here we share the creative solidarity of the communities of Morazan (Honduras) and Guantanamo (Cuba) stitching masks for the most needy.
On March 22nd, a day of solidarity and prayer of all consecrated life was celebrated for all those who have been affected by COVID-19 (declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11th).
Jolanta Kafka, our General Superior and UISG President, in collaboration with the USG, invited the Religious from all over the world to join together in this extraordinary time which "provides space for acts of generosity and expressions of gratitude especially to those who are in the front line caring for the sick and those engaged in research projects searching for remedies, and those at work in the public services. No matter who they are or where they are, they should know that they are in the thoughts and prayers of all consecrated persons in the world”.
Hello dear Family,
we have the joy of announcing that between November 2 and 6, 2020 we will hold the IV Congress of Claretian Educators with the theme: "Towards a Transformative Claretian Education”.
We feel that this initiative does not sound new to anyone, since it is part of a journey that we have been making as a Claretian Family for years.
If we recall our history in this field, the first Congress was held in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) in 2002, followed by the second in Vic (Spain) in 2008 and the third in Bangalore (India) in 2014. God willing we prepare to celebrate the IV in Mongomo, Equatorial Guinea - Africa.
The IV Congress of Claretian Educators in Africa has as its goal, the consolidation and organization of the educational identity through an integral education that takes into account human values, the richness of some elements of the African cultural wisdom, reconsidered from a process of transformation of the triangle Family/Society-School-Church and the testimony and coherence of the life of the educators.
We send you the link from which you can formalize your registration. We ask you to fill it in properly and to register as soon as possible as we only have 100 places available. Registration will be open until June 30th, 2020.

On 12th March 2020, a new missionary community was inaugurated in Guayaramerín, belonging to the Vicariate of Pando, Bolivia, in the Province of Latin America.
The community is made up of 4 sisters: Martha, Judith, Lucia and Josiane.
The evangelizing commitment that they will develop in shared mission with the local-diocesan Church and the community of the Claretian Missionaries will be in different fields: rural ministry, migrants, education, "care of the common house", JPIC, vocational ministry and etc.
Msgr. Eugene Coter, bishop of the Pando Vicariate, in the celebration of welcome and sending, invited them not to be afraid and to be evangelizers of the Word of God, to be prudent and attentive.
May this new missionary journey be a new and creative opportunity for the God of Jesus to be known, loved and praised in this land of the Amazon!
With joy today the Congregation joins in remembering the life of this young Claretian sister, who at her tender age understood God’s invitation to walk the path of holiness. She expresses to us how she was moved in these desires.
“I must build the edifice of my sanctification on the firm rock of faith, of love, of fortification”
Her way of living the Following of Jesus motivates our missionary vocation, bearing in mind that holiness is a common horizon for all. Welcoming this path is linked to daily commitment, through simple gestures of love and service to our brothers.
We especially remember our young sisters in their initial stages of formation, above all the Juniors! HAPPY DAY!
