Looking for opportunities to share resources and ideas

Salomi has been a member of the Asia Pacific Formation Team since December 2012.  With the recent departure of Sister Tess Figueroa to Kenya, Salomi has taken up the role of Chair of this Team.

She is also a member of the organizing committee for the Asia Pacific Intercontinental Assembly to be held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2014.

In its work, the Formators’ Core Team is guided by the Directions Statement of the Congregational Chapter 2009 which challenges us “to ensure a holistic and relevant formation that prepares, renews and sustains” us in today’s realities. 

After the two training modules for formators, the Team commits to plan programs for follow-up learnings and skill development so as to continue to nurture new life in the Provinces of Asia Pacific.  The Team also commits to share and tap resources with other regions in the implementation of the holistic model.

‘Good Shepherd Asia Pacific is important to me because it enables us to network and collaborate with the countries in the Asia Pacific region so that there is greater impact in our mission.  It will provide more opportunities to share resources and ideas as a way of being more effective in mission. This will also encourage and motivate one another and give a broader outlook to the mission.’
