In the south of Brasil, Marists share experiences of the XXI General Chapter

26/11/2009: Brazil

Dozens of Brothers, lay people from the schools and Social Centres, members of the Champagnat Movement of the Marist Family, and collaborators of the Rio Grande do Sul Province gathered to share experiences of the XXI General Chapter. The meeting was held in the « Colégio Marista Champagnat », of Porto Alegre, and was animated by the Brother capitulants, Lauro Hochscheidt, Pedro Ost and Inácio Etges.
During the morning, the Provincial, Br. Lauro, gave a brief explanation of the preparations for the Chapter, mentioning the persons involved, whether through the Provincial Assembly, the Capitulants’ Meeting, or the Regional Meeting.
Then Br. Pedro Ost presented to those present the times lived in Rome, by means of photos and other documents. He highlighted the participation of the laity, the celebrations, visits, study groups, and the development of the elections of the Superior General, the Vicar General and the General Councillors.
The first part of the meeting finished with celebration of Mass in the school chapel. In the afternoon, Br.Inácio Etges co-ordinated the sharing on the follow-up to the Chapter. Meeting in small groups, Brothers, laity and co-workers reflected together on the calls of the Chapter. The central question requiring a response was to know how the Marist Network of Rio Grande do Sul could follow up on the General Chapter. According to the Brother capitulants, the responses from each group will provide a basis for future actions in the Province.
