Fraternity of Lyon
The Fraternity of Lyon was created on 3 July 2003 by Brother George Pommier, Provincial at that time, and the advisor Brother was Br. Adelsio Delfabro, Argentinian Brother who formed part of the Community of Ars. After the return of Br. Adelsio to Argentina, Brother Teodoro Berzal, from the Community of Belley, is appointed advisor to our Fraternity. The first team of animation, which is renewed every three years, starts its activity. The first compromises take place in 2005.
Today the Fraternity is formed by 24 persons: the three directors of the 3 different stages of the School, some parents and former parents of students, retired teachers and teachers in activity, the presidents of the association of management and of parents of students. Three Brothers accompany us: Br. Teodoro, Br. Bruno and Br. Simon (the advisor).
Some members of the Fraternity have participated in the international meetings of the Fraternities and in the Chapters of the Brothers.
We meet twice per trimester. The compromises take place once a year during the Eucharistic Celebration. In 2003-2004 we have worked on the documents of the General Chapter and we have appreciated, with much admiration, the testimonies of Br. Teodoro about the Communities in India and Indonesia, in the Philippines and in Ecuador; we are now aware of the spreading of the Congregations. Once a year we have a meeting with the Fraternities of Italy, sharing experiences and life.
All these activities allow us to live more intensely the spirituality of Brother Gabriel Taborin.
