On Sunday evening 20 May, the opening of the international formation weeks in Tilburg was held in the Generalate of the Brothers CMM in Tilburg. This period of formation is mainly intended for young brothers in preparation for their profession for life. The participants are eight brothers from Kenya, six brothers from Indonesia and one brother from Timor Leste. For two weeks they attend workshops in the field of mercy, brotherhood, vows, Marian spirituality, and the history of the Congregation. Then, on June 3, the group will leave for France for two weeks. In a Vincentian pilgrimage they will learn about the Vincentian charism of the Congregation.
