How to live Champagnat’s dream today



Vocations Year in Central America

11/08/2005: El Salvador

The 2nd meeting of the young people of the province of Central America took place from 29 to 31 July. It was part of the vocations year and its theme was: “To live Champagnat’s dream today.”
There was a great diversity of ages and origins. Our students and former students studying in the universities came from the 5 countries which the province covers: Costa Rica (16), Guatemala (82), Nicaragua (40), Puerto Rico (16) and the host country, El Salvador (529). There were as well 35 Brothers, 7 teachers, and 7 members of a Marist fraternity. In all 737 young Marists.
The afternoon of the 29th was given over to welcoming and organizing the work. Brother Nice presented the programme for the three days gathering. Brother Theoneste Kalisa representing the General Council read the Superior General, Br Sean’s message to the participants.
The participants from outside the country were hosted by the Marist families of El Salvador. There was a great family spirit evident among the young people. Everyone was at the service of all.
The next day commenced with Brother Provincial’s dialogue with all the young people in the main gymnasium of the ‘Liceo Salvadoreno’. The rest of the day was consecrated to working in groups centred on the experience of the vocations year and the great question: “How to live Champagnat’s dream today.”
On Sunday, the day began with a Marist march to the tomb of Bishop Romero and the closing Eucharist was celebrated at the end of the morning.
