Embracing our call



A new Marist evangelization program is inaugurated

13/11/2008: United States

The first session of Embracing Our Call, the newest Marist Evangelization program, was held in Esopus from Sunday, October 12 through Tuesday, October 14.

Participants were: Pat Call and Irene Culmo (Christopher Columbus); Bob and Ginny Grady, Barney and Ann Sheridan, and Don Mulcare (Marist Laity); Craig Carbone (Marist-Bayonne); Bonnie Littleton, Bill Musil, and Larry Ormond (Marist-Chicago); Mar Binef and Isabel Lopez (St. Brendan); and Shelly Erwin and Felipa Gamez (St. Joseph Academy)

Embracing Our Call evolved out of the experiences of nearly 600 men and women who have participated in Sharing Our Call since the first session was offered in December 1998. For a number of years we have talked about a “follow-up” or “next level” to Sharing Our Call. After consultation with a number of principals, presidents, and SOC participants, the theme that emerged in terms of “follow-up” or “next level” was the participants’ desire to deepen their personal and Marist spirituality as it is lived out in their ministry of Marist Education.

The themes/presentations of Embracing Our Call were: “Call and Charism: informed by Catholic Social Teaching, Marcellin Champagnat, and our Marist Heritage”; “Deepening Our Call in the Spiritual Life”; “Yours, Mine, Theirs, Ours: What do we need to know about youth spirituality?” and “The Stories of Our Lives: Culture and Practice in a Marist Setting.”

The presentation team for Embracing Our Call was: Brothers Hank Hammer, Ben Consigli, and Don Bisson and Ms. Alice Miesnik from Marist High School in Bayonne, New Jersey.
