New site of the Evangelization Subcommission of America

20/06/2012: General House

The Marist Evagelization Subcommission of America has a new interactive space for contributing to make Jesus known and loved by children and young people. The page 'sites.marista.edu.br/subcomissao' makes available  videos, texts and images for reflections on the evangelizing activities and Marist ministries in the continent. The space has also been conceived for the sharing and exchange of 'good practices'.

The virtual space makes its appearance at an important time for Marist youth. The Subcommission team is opening the agenda of events with a view to preparing for the Year of Marist Youth of America in 2013. The first initiative is the Regional Meeting on the Marist Youth Ministry Document, « Evangelizers in the midst of youth », to be held at Campinas from 30 July to 3 August. In starting with the International MYM Document, the objective is to celebrate the progress of the MYM in America and to analyze the situation of young people in the current context.

Another event to be noted is the Meeting of Pastoral Co-ordinators of America from3 to 7 August in the same city. The ai mis to reflect on the evangelization of children and young people in a wider sense, open to all the expressions of the Marist Mission. It will also be the time to discuss and approve the strategic plan of the Subcommission up to 2017, which forsees among its priorities the new modes of evangelization in a context of vulnerability; studies among children and youth; Marist Youth Ministries; a reflection on the experiences of God among children and youth, and the use of social networks.

The Subcommission, formed in 2010, aims to promote – together with the provincial teams and the persons who animate and co-ordinate evangelisation in the Provinces and Districts – the linking up, orientation and accompaniment of the processes of evangelization for children, adolescents and young people in America. The group is composed of Br Luiz André Pereira, of the Province of « Brasil Centro-Norte », Claudia Gonzalez, of « Cono Sur », and Ulises Centeno, of the Province of « México Central ».
