Marist Calendar - September

Tabatinga, Brazil


International Communities for a New Beginning


Three countries (Brazil, Peru, Colombia) share a common border in this area of the Upper Amazon. There are twin towns – Tabatinga (Brazil) and Leticia (Colombia) – that are 1000 km to the nearest cities in their respective countries, with no roads. So, it is quite isolated. The area is home to many indigenous rainforest groups, other indian descendants, mixed-race river people, “missionaries, mercenaries and misfits”, those trying to exploit the resources of the Amazon and those defending against this. The community is yet to determine a Marist project as such but has involved itself in diocesan youth work. It also has connection with a group against Human Trafficking.
