Programmes of formation for laity


Maristas Modules intended for lay Marists.
CEPAM - Mexico.

This is how Br. Aureliano Brambila, director of CEPAM, presents these modules. Marist laity have frequently and over a period of time asked CEPAM to consider courses better adapted to their life situations. We believe we have finally achieved this, at least in what concerns the programming. We hope that these modules will prove as successful as the courses for the brothers. The whole programme is made up of 20 modules. Each of them contains important parts that can be classified as: correspondance active and passive, documents and testimonies, biography of  Father Champagnat.

Two other reasons have led me to develop this approach: the need to define clear  concepts about the identity and vocation of lay Marists, and the importance of making known the principles which must govern specific as well as common formation, as well as the necessity of clarifying for all what should be the role of the brothers in the formation of the laity.
