Preparatory commission for the II International Marist Mission Assembly - IMMA

23/06/2012: General House

At its meeting of 22 May 2012, the General Council appointed the Preparatory Commission for the II International Marist  Mission Assembly to be held in September 2014. The members of the Commission are: Br João Carlos do Prado (Secretariat of Mission, co-ordinator) ; Br Javier Espinosa (Secretariat of the Laity) ; Br César Rojas (Secretariat Brothers today) ; Br Paul Bhatti (South Asia) ; Mr Manuel Gómez Cid (Mediterránea) ; Mrs Mónica Linares (Cruz del Sur) ; Mr Frank Malloy (Sydney) ; Mrs Alice Miesnik (USA) and Br Mark Omede (Nigeria).

The task of the Commission is to prepare and hold the IIInternational Marist Mission Assembly : proposal of date and place ; work out and set in motion the preparatory process (local, provincial and regional phases) ; holding of the Assembly ; evaluation and implementation of decisions. The first meeting will take place in Rome from 25 to 29 June 2012.

The first  International Marist Mission Assembly, held at Mendes, Brasil, from 3 to 12 September 2007, had as motto « one heart, one mission ». It was considered a great success for the life and history of the Institute. At the end of the Assembly, the participants said: « As representatives of all the Provinces and Districts of the Marist world, we have gathered, brothers and laity, in Mendes, Brasil, to take part in the 1 International Marist Mission Assembly. We have listened to the Lord, we have heard the voices of the children, and we have listened to one another. We have shared in depth our desire of working together to refine our dreams. At their centre, Jesus reveals himself to us as son of Mary and risen Lord. »

At the close of the Assembly, five calls were addressed to the Institute:

  1. A REVOLUTION OF THE HEART: TO BE OPEN TO THE BREATH OF THE SPIRIT.
  2. marists of champagnat In SHARED mission.
  3. MARIST Présence IN évangélisation.
  4. MARIST EDUCATION: NEW CHALLENGES.
  5. DEFENSE AND PROMOTION OF THE RIGHTS OF CHILDREN AND YOUTH : TO GIVE THE WORD TO THE VOICELESS.

The IIMarist Mission Assembly is a mandate received from the 21st General Chapter which asked us to « organise a new International Marist Mission Assembly, in the spirit of  Mendes ». It will contribute greatly to respond to the calls that God made to the Institute during the General Chapter.

We invite the whole Institute to prepare for this great event. Children, young people, laity and Brothers,  all subjects of the Marist  mission, we are invited by God to realize « the Marist mission in a new world », a new land. May Mary, Marcellin and our predessors give us light and courage and hope  in the quest for a new dawn for the Marist Institute.
