COSTA RICA, Michelle Ramírez •
Costa Rica extends an invitation to the First International Meeting of Family Federation Formation instructors. The International Family Federation leadership supports this.
The presence of the Blessed Mother in the Shrine renders fruitfulness
Seven months after having inaugurated its first Shrine, four family formation instructors from the Costa Rican Family Federation assume the challenge to form an “…international web of formation instructors who utilize common pedagogical tools and who promote an exchange of knowledge, experiences, and accents among different countries and territories.”
The meeting will take place 2-4 March 2018, in San José, Costa Rica, at the Schoenstatt Movement House adjacent to the “Family of Hope” Shrine.
Participation will be open to all families involved in formation instruction in the Schoenstatt Family Federation at the international level.
Spanish will be used for the meeting with English translation available.
An international platform for the exchange of knowledge and experiences
“We desire to establish a base for forming an international bank of bibliographical audiovisual resources that will help to support family formation to study and develop Family Federation topics,” we are told by Manuel Emilio and Marta Hernández, a family formation team in charge of the meeting.
The coordinating group in Costa Rica is composed of four families, Alcides and Marta Bogarín González, international coordinators, are supporting this endeavor.
Schoenstatt Costa Rica opens its doors to the study. And why not be open to the covenant of brother countries or this small Central American country’s ecological tourism?
