Meeting of the Marist Alumni

04/07/2008: Cuba

The Marist brothers and alumni of “la Perla del Sur” in Cuba gathered last 14th June in the Chapel of the House of the Virgin of the Rosary to celebrate the Eucharist and give thanks to the Lord for the blessings of God through Marcellin Champagnat.

The Eucharist was presided over by Fr. Saimel Perdomo. Brother Carlos Martinez Lavin reminded us that the charisma of Marcellin is like a “channel that grows within its banks: the channel became a river and the river a sea”. Marcellin was a man faithful to God in times of crisis, a man who continues to call many pupils of Cienfuegos to be “good Christians and righteous citizens”. In the present, as he did in the past, Jesus invites people to welcome children in his name to build the kingdom of God starting from what seems irrelevant. Children are frank, transparent, simple, joyful, without complications. They are not vengeful, they forget the offences they receive.

At Cienfuegos, like in the rest of Cuba, Marist alumni and pupils are called to be sowers of hope day by day. “New hearts, new times. New hearts for a new world, for a new Cuba of solidarity and fraternity”. The meeting ended with a moment of sharing to the rhythm of the local music. “guaracha, son and habaneras”. The meeting was also an opportunity to celebrate the 50th anniversary of 3 bachelor’s degrees dating back to 1958. Congratulations!
