All of the brothers from the two fraternities that compose the Foundation where present: the “International Fraternity for Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue” St. Maria Draperis (Istanbul – Turkey) and the “European Missionary Fraternity” of Palestrina (Rome – Italy).The three days centered on fraternal dialogue in the search for how best to live the Gospel and serve the Order.
The focus was placed on the compilation of a written document describing two fraternities and the Foundation, which will be inserted in the site of the Order. Another topic that was affronted was the formation program for the postulants of the Foundation.
