Greetings!

This month our featured country is Seoul, South Korea. John Kim, Head of Education, tells us what they have been doing during the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. It has caused them to become more creative in carrying out their Marianist activities during these difficult times.

I have included a wonderful Infographic overview of Pope Francis' recent encyclical, Fratelli Tutti. It makes the encyclical much easier to understand at a glance. Please share it within all of your communities.

Our International Team met for three days of Zoom meetings at the beginning of November. That was followed by two full days of World Council Zoom meetings. By the end of five days, our heads were "swimming" and full of the lively discussions we had.

I will report about this meeting in the December issue of Gifts and Tasks.

For many of us, Thanksgiving won't be celebrated the same this year due to Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. So my prayer is about finding creative ways to keep the spirit of the season.

Blessings and peace to each of you!
