Marist Calendar - September




2016 Novices of the interprovincial Novitiate "La Valla' in Medellin, Colombia


I want to test my vocation 

and see if I am called to be a Marist Brother.”



The Novitiate is an 18-24 month program or “apprenticeship” where the young man formally enters into the Institute of the Marist Brothers and learns to begin living as a Brother. Currently, in some parts of the Marist world, the young man may move to another country and/or culture to take part in an inter-province, inter-national formation.

The aim of this time is to help the Novice:
  • deepen his relationship with God and the Marist Brothers through prayer, meditation and study of Marist life and consecration
  • discover the stable, inner core of his identity as a person and Marist Brother, while remaining open, flexible and creative in the ways he will be called to live this out
  • appreciate the full meaning of Brotherhood, assisting him to live this in community and in ministry with those to whom he is missioned as a Brother

The Novitiate is completed with the Profession of First Vows.
