Asia Pacific: Training on Ignatian Institutional capacity building

The annual gathering of social apostolate coordinators and directors of some social centers was held at Chiang Mai, Thailand from August 20-24. As in the previous year, they also brought some scholastics to participate in the meeting. The meeting helped the participants to review the progress made during the last one year and also to provide training about Ignatian institutional capacity building. The training provided an opportunity to reflect on Ignatian organizations, leadership, communication, advocacy and other key issues that the social apostolate faces when trying to respond better to the needs of the poor. The meeting was also an occasion to visit some of the works with the poor of the Thai region Jesuits.
