The Assembly on Ministry brings 150 persons together in Curitiba

14/03/2011: Brazil

The Province of « Brasil Centro-Sul » held an Assembly on Ministry from 1 to 3 March, at the Centre Marcellin Champagnat in Curitiba – PR. Some 150 persons met with the aim of attaining the following objectives: review the progress of ministry in the Province from 2003 to 2010; hear about the successes, challenges and projects deriving from the « Mantenedoras » (juridical entities responsible for the Marist schools of Brasil) of the Marist Enterprises and Units as far as the institutional mission was concerned; reflect on the fundamental calls of the XXI General Chapter and the challenges currently arising; consolidate the main lines of action for evangelization of the Marist Ministry of the Province of « Brasil Centro-Sul » (PMBCS) and suggest new  horizons ; promote attentiveness to the voices of the PMBCS on the action of evangelisation.

As methodology, the assembly started from considering the actual situations, with particular attention to the main pastoral initiatives implemented, identifying progress, gaps, and dreams. From the systematisation of the data collected, preliminary  propositions were made, capable of orientating the discussions during the meeting. Thus, beginning with the central question: « What is the new land to which we are called to journey? », the participants were invited to indicate the main horizons of the pastoral action of the Province for the next few years. To guide the reflection, the assembly benefitted from moments of celebration, the help of Prof. Jung Mo Sung and the report on the results of the research on Beliefs and Values carried out with the pupils of Intermediate Teaching of Marist Brazil.
