Guatemala - Spiritual exercises for Salesian Cooperators and solidarity initiatives for communities affected by tropical storm Eta
Guatemala City, Guatemala - November 2020 - The spiritual exercises of the Salesian Cooperators of Guatemala took place on 7 and 8 November with study, reflection and evaluation on the theme "The Project of Apostolic Life and our commitment". The event with 70 participants was coordinated by the "Domingo Savio" Local Center and took place on the Zoom platform. It was an opportunity to reflect on the action of the Salesian Cooperator in the light of the Project of Apostolic Life, meditating on the various articles, with moments of sharing; and on how the spirituality of the Salesian Cooperator was lived in times of pandemic, without losing hope and remaining in contact with the recipients. There were some moments of sharing experiences and a moment of prayer for the communities of Alta Verapaz, where there is a strong Salesian presence, which was severely hit by the tropical storm Eta. Several solidarity initiatives were also shared to support their needs.
