In 2008, Sr. Inmaculada Fukasawa convoked the first International Assembly for the ACI Family in Rome. This took place from the 20th to 25th April 2009.
Thirty-eight people (32 lay people and 6 Handmaids) met with the General Team. Sixteen different countries were represented in the house of XX Settembre, where St Raphaela Mary lived and died.
The aim of the assembly was to consolidate the identity of the ACI Family, strengthening its understanding of belonging to a “body” and looking for ways of organization, formation and communication.
