At 5 PM, after so many sessions, documents, computers, motions… a good breath of Josephan Oxygen: meeting with the youth of the St. Leonard Family of the Ecuadorian-Colombian province, coordinated by Fr. Jaime Bravo (vice president of the chapter and director of the community of Babahoyo, Ecuador). We gather all together in the auditorium: speeches, prayers, songs, … and a nice final dinner! A beautiful moment of fraternity with youth, the subject of many words in the chapter and finally also in direct contact with us, face to face! For the rest, the photos attached and others that you find on social networks speak for themselves…
