The 6th PGC at Saint Lambert-des-Bois near Paris

St. Lambert-des-Bois, 12th century churchNestled in a national forest 20 miles southwest of Paris lies the sleepy village of St. Lambert-des-Bois with its typical stone residences and its picturesque 12th century chapel. Several years ago the Assumptionists were asked to replace a small Benedictine community that some 60 years ago built a lovely retreat and conference center.

It was in this setting that the Assumptionist Plenary General Council/PGC (the superior general, his team, and the six provincials of the congregation) held their semi-annual meeting. During these meetings the PGC discusses any number of recurring topics: openings and closings of houses, the first assignments of newly ordained priests, an evaluation of the mobilizing works of the congregation (such as Assumption College and Bayard Press), the financial state of the congregation, and relations with lay partners. There are in addition to these topics a series of others which touch on the ongoing life of the institute.

Fr. Peter Omwoyo, A.A.InterviewerWould you share a bit about your background: family, childhood, early education etc.?

Fr. Peter – I was born in 1976, in the western part of Kenya in Kisii County, to Sabina Moraa and Patrice Omwoyo. I am the third child in a family of four sons and one daughter. My father, who is now deceased, was a ‘stone dresser.’ The deep faith of my Catholic family was passed on to me. I was baptized at fifteen years of age after catechetical preparation and confirmed a few years later. My primary and secondary education took place in public schools that were Catholic sponsored.

Reflecting Anywhere

Pat HaggertyBy Pat Haggerty

For the past few weeks I have been vacationing at the New Hampshire shore.  It has been wonderful, and we have been truly blessed with fantastic weather!  Perhaps one of the best things about being at the ocean is that it is so easy to reflect.  There is nothing to compare to a long walk on the beach with the warm breezes blowing, the sun shining and the cold water on your feet.

It is easy for me to reflect on God’s goodness and marvel at His creations.  The power of the ocean waves reminds me of God’s strength.  The cycle of the tides is synonymous with the constancy of God.  The blueness of the water is a symbol of the generosity God, which He pours out to us daily.
