JOY AND GLADNESS IN THE BROTHERS OF YECORA, SONORA
Written by Christian Valenzuela
Peace and Good in the Lord!
On Saturday, February 23, this year the Franciscan youth of the community of Yécora, Sonora, had a party because, after so much effort and work, we were finally constituted as brothers in the Region. The brothers first began as a youth group with several young people in charge of some friars: Friar Israel Maldonado, Friar José Armando Leyva, and in the last 3 years in charge of Friar Arturo Lozano.
We have various apostolates in our community and we have our missions of Holy week and some other activities. Also this February 23, we had our local chapter where we elect the new Council of the brothers. This activity was experienced with joy and love, we had the presence of our spiritual Advisor: Friar Daniel Jiménez OFM Cap and the presence of the regional trainer: Br. Carlos Mosqueda; and Friar José Cruz Bernal OFM; which gave some words of encouragement to the new Council «Before being the authority, are first brothers».
We had the celebration of the impositions of Christs of San Damián and Taus, after Mass and confirmation of trades, ending with a healthy and harmonious coexistence between the brother Capitulants.
We ask your prayer for us and may the Lord bless you and give you peace.
Peace and good!!!
