Interprovincial meeting of Formators and Vocation Animators

10/06/2005: Brazil

An interprovincial meeting of Formators and Vocation Animators took place in Florianópolis, Brazil, from the 14th to the 19th May 2005. Forty brothers representing Brasil and two brothers from the Province of Santa María de los Andes participated in the meeting. The meeting also benefited greatly from the work of two other people who guided everyone during the stage of JUDGING to reflect on and understand directions to be taken that are relative to today’s young people in these post-modern times.
Also present were the Brothers Provincial, the District Superior and Brother Antonio Carlos Ramalho, General Councillor. Their presence was very much appreciated and valued by the participants in the meeting.
The coordination was under the responsibility of the Brazilian Interprovincial Commission for Formation and Vocation Animation. The stages of the meeting developed along the lines of the methodology SEE, JUDGE and ACT.

The objectives of living together, sharing and helping each to move forward along common lines for the Provinces were realised fully. The final evaluation proved the validity and the importance of these meetings to consolidate restructuring and to advance collaboratively in the vitality of the Provinces and in the refoundation of the Institute.
The following action lines were chosen for the next few years:
1. To make the time of formation stages more flexible, adapting it to the needs of those in formation.
2. To assure each person in formation individual attention regarding his growth towards human, Christian and Marist maturity, guiding him towards autonomous responsibility.
3. To continue the training of Vocation Animators and Formators through ongoing formation and through inter-congregational collaboration.
4. To revitalise our communities by fraternal relationships and by giving more authentic witness.
5. To centre the life of the brothers and those in formation in Jesus Christ, through formation in Marist Apostolic Spirituality, missionary spirit, apostolic commitment, the meaning of being members of the Church and solidarity.
The visit to the shrine of Saint Paulina was a restful afternoon shared in the pleasant company of all.
