Celebration of the International Day of the CM: Starting over HERE and NOW for the Province of Central Africa

It all started more than 403 years ago with the young GLICERIO Landriani during a retreat where his encounter with God gave birth to the Calasanz Movement and today everything wants to start again HERE and NOW in the province of Central Africa.
To begin again with God through others is the opportunity offered to us by the celebration of the International Day of the Calasanz Movement this year 2021, the chronology of the photos tells us the course of the day:

Strengthening resilience with teachers of 3 primary schools in response to the ongoing crisis in the English Speaking Cameroon.

With the goal of ensuring continuity in learning, activities on crisis – response measures were held with about 40 teachers of 3 Catholic Primary Schools of Futru, Mbelem and Menteh, Bamenda, North West Region, Cameroon. The essence was to pass on to them skills, to enable them respond adequately to the different challenges they face in their day to day activities in the schools, in relation to the ongoing crisis in the North West Region of Cameroon.

The activities were also based at creating a crisis conscious environment and response measures within our schools and to facilitate response to humanitarian gestures for the support of children internally displaced in our schools.

Restarting with courage and passion: meeting of the leaders of the PAC works at the local headquarters in Bafia

The general meeting of the leaders of the works of the Central African Province was held. PAC’s vision of Beginning again with passion and courage was expressed through the different items on the agenda of this meeting and the great participation of the greatest number of leaders. Thus, one of the points on the agenda, to quote only << Evaluation of the recommendations of the last field visit>>, edifies us on the content and importance of this meeting for a healthy perpetuation of the works of the Province of Central Africa.
