Evangelizers in the midst of youth



Document for Marist Youth Ministry (MYM)

21/10/2011: General House

At the beginning of the second semester of this year, the Administrative Units  (AUs) received the document “Evangelizers in the midst of youth”. This is a reference document for Marist Youth Ministry (MYM) throughout the Institute. We are sending you now a suggestion for study and application of the document, prepared by the International MYM Commission, which met in Rome from 1 to 5 August.

The suggestions for strategies, aids and the development process can be found by using the MYM link on the web page of the Institute. We wish all these resources to contribute to the MYM becoming a living and prophetic reality in the whole Institute.

We recommend that in each Province and District a MYM Committee be set up,   formed of Brothers, lay persons and youth, with the object of implementing the process we are presenting. This Committee will cause the process to be more effective. I would be grateful if you sent me by mail the name of the co-ordinator of this Committee and his/her electronic address so as to guarantee the communication necessary during this period.

The objective of the document is to strengthen the MYM throughout the   Institute. For the AUs which have some experience of youth ministry, we hope it will be a support for its strengthening and renewal. The AUs lacking such experience will find in the document elements and guidelines that will help them develop vital and innovative proposals for the evangelization of young people.

The document is also intended to be a call to all Brothers and Lay Marists to be open to youth with joy and passion. The 21st General Chapter invites us to consider evangelization as the nucleus of our mission. The MYM can be an excellent project of evangelization for our time. At the same time, it is a privileged space for youth leadership in each of the places where the Marist mission is carried out and in the Institute.
