On February 2, 2022, the first two international fraternities in the Amazon region of the Americas were inaugurated with ten brothers from Colombia, Peru, Brazil and Mexico.
With these fraternities, specific locations have been set up for living out our charism through fraternity, prayer, minority and the apostolate-mission with greater intensity: "These international fraternities represent a return to the values of our charism that have been left behind,” reminds the General Councilor Br. Silvio de Almeida. It is important to emphasize that these fraternities are not only an opportunity for the circumscriptions that are now involved, but they are a project for all the Americas and a sign that collaboration is possible in the midst of the different situations in which the brothers live. “These fraternities are an international project that acts as a model or pilot for opening other presences in the Americas” reminds the Vicar General, Br. José Ángel Torres.
