Taking on the plan of Jesus Christ and fulfilling Marcellin Champagnats dream



The 35th Anniversary of the REMAR Movement

03/07/2012: Colombia

In 2012, we are celebrating the 35th anniversary of the REMAR movement. Since the first carabela (caravel) began its journey through Ipiales (Colombia), hundreds of young people have taken on the grand challenge of advancing the plan of Jesus Christ, to find out that to love and serve is our true North, working together to realise the mission of the Church and making Marcellin Champagnat's dream come true.

Accompanying young people provides the opportunity to understand their realities, their language ​​and desires, as well as to pass the project proposed by the movement on to them with a Christian approach. This is quite a challenge, as each proposed experience is a good way to discover the presence of God as Jesus Christ in the daily life of each member. This process aims at providing answers to young people's questions and meeting their needs by offering a variety of choices for their day-to-day lives, along with a method and the unique spirituality of the movement. This makes working as a timonel (helmsman), animator, counselor and remero (rower) the answer to the call of Mary (Star of the Sea), Marcellin (the Old Salt) and Jesus Christ (Friend and Great Helmsman) to continue to build a new world, celebrating each new day and always remembering that "aperson whose purpose is not to serve has no purpose in life."  "
