Meeting of the animators of the preparation process of preparation for the XXIst General Chapter

06/04/2009: Brazil

On 27 and 28 March 2009, at the « Centro Marista Marcelino Champagnat » in Curitiba (Brazil) was held the meeting of the animators of the process of preparation for the XXIst General Chapter. Its purpose was to move forward the process of preparation and the planning of each Administrative UnitSon (AU) up to the holding of the General Chapter, and to prepare for the regional meetings of Brazil and the Southern Cone with the brother capitulants and those invited. These meetings will take place in Buenos Aires (Argentine), from 30 April to 3 May 2009, and in Curitiba (Brazil), from 6 to 9 May 2009.

The meeting developped in an excellent atmosphere of fraternal friendship. Those who took part were Brothers Rafael Kongfook (Santa María de Los Andes), Ignacio Pruna (District of Paraguay), Valdícer Fachi (Rio Grande do Sul), Francisco Chagas (Brasil Centro-Norte), Anacleto Peruzzo (Brasil Centro-Sul) and João Carlos do Prado, of the Preparatory Commission for the XXIst General Chapter.

The sharing about the preparation process which is taking place in the AU was very rich. It is necessary to raise anew the great enthusiasm, the strong participation and commitment of brothers, laity and youth in the discernment proceedings proposed by the Preparatory Commission. The methods of getting people involved are very varied, for they have to respond to the characteristics and the possibilities of each of the AU. The participation of the brother capitulants has been opened and it contributes to the acquiring of a fresh view of the AU and the Institute.

The animators returned to their AU with renewed enthusiasm, conscious that the step undertaken goes beyond the frontiers of each region to include the whole Institute . The zeal shown in preparing the regional meetings for Brazil and the Southern Cone already provides a foretaste of the spirit of discernment and openness to the Spirit which will doubtless be found again once they take place.

The participants offer sincere thanks to the brothers and laity of the « Brasil Centro-Sul » Province, and especially the « Centro Marista Marcelino Champagnat », for their warm hospitality and for their unfailing support during the meeting.
