News from Austria
News and current projects
- Monthly newsletter by e-mail and also on our homepage (www.gcloe.at)
- In progress: a series of events on "Being Stranger" in my town/in the region/in Austria. We invited our groups to treat the subject first on a personal level, then communally on a regional level (recommendation: invite local experts) and finally on national level next autumn, where we think of inviting a legal expert. Our national ExCo provides guidelines for all levels.
- For the first time we embarked on a process of receiving new groups as members of the National Community, following a procedure similar to world level. One or two groups will most likely become full members at our next National Assembly.
- A Powerpoint presentation (in German) has been prepared to introduce CLC to newcomers. Our EA has the wonderful ability of finding men and women interested in starting new CLC groups. Fr. Plaickner makes sure they get the help they need. A sign of hope.
- New "official" mission: guiding spiritual exercises in everyday life in Lent in two parishes in Vienna and at the CLC Secretariat.
