Annual Meeting of European BFD

Dear Blessed Family Department Representatives,

We extend a warm welcome to you and anyone working with your national Blessed Family Department to this year’s Annual Meeting.
As always, this annual meeting provides us a great opportunity to meet together and develop our working and personal relationships. We can share essential information, make plans and discuss approaches to important issues – this is the main chance in the year that we have to formulate our policies, share best practices and offer each other practical support.
Please consider sending a representative if your national BFD person is unable to attend, and please come as a couple (reduced rate), if you are able to do so. Please make a special effort to encourage any young person who is working with you in your national BFD to attend – we need to give our future BFD staff this opportunity.

There will be an International BFD Meeting in Korea after the Blessing in August. We will pass on reports from this and from the events surrounding the Seonghwa commemorations.

National Reports: Many of you have things you would like to report about and share with others working in the field. National reports will not be in the program itself, so please prepare written reports (maximum two sides of A4 paper). We will copy these and make
them available at the back of the hall. Please send them to bfed.eu@gmail.com by Sunday 7th October.
If you wish to contact us to discuss anything – if you have a particular issue you want raised or have something you would like to contribute to the meeting – please email me at orlande@esgd.org or contact Margaret Staudinger: marga.staudinger@gmail.com (our secretary). We look forward to seeing you there!
Sincerely,

Orlande and the BFD team
