In April 2013 Pilgrimage in Europe
In 1556 Jean Leunis’ made a pilgrimage, from Liege (Belgium) to Rome (Italy), to meet Saint Ignatius and join the Society of Jesus. Six years later in Rome Leunis founded “Prima Primaria”, which was the origin of Sodality of our Lady and CLC. 450 years later our pilgrimage will be done to emulate Leunis’ journey to the foundation of what we may call, the lay companions.

Meeting between the General Council of Jesuits and CLC
On Tuesday, 27 March 2012, Fr. General and his Council met with some members of the Executive Council (ExCo) of CLC. The purpose of this meeting was to explore how these two Ignatian bodies in the Church could continue their close collaboration. There was exchange of gratitude and appreciation for the constant support to one another. Then the members of the meeting looked into the various dimensions through which CLC, as a Lay Apostolic Body, could carry the Ignatian charism into all the areas such as their daily life, apostolic involvement, and responsibility for institutional works. Final discussion was on the oncoming celebration of the 450 years Jubilee of Ignatian lay communities in 2013.
