“CHANGE: make a difference!”



Meeting of the Organising Commission of the International Encounter of Marist Youth, Rio 2013

04/09/2012: Brazil
IMYM | 17-21 July 2013

The Organising Commission of CHANGE – International Encounter of Marist Youth│Rio 2013 met in Rio de Janeiro (RJ) from 14 to 16 August. The Commission comprises representatives of the three Marist Provinces and the District in Brazil, members of União Marista do Brasil (UMBRASIL), and Br João Carlos do Prado, director of the Secretariat of Mission (Rome). The agenda included: explanation and evaluation of preparatory work already done; harmonizing requirements with regard to registration; formation of volunteers; accommodation; booth at the Vocations Fair; solidarity activities with NGO’s; Missionary Week (before the encounter); meeting of the four branches of the Marist Family; communication and marketing; fund-raising; and the specific role of UMBRASIL as such during the event.

The venue for CHANGE will be the São José Marist College, Tijuca, in the state of Rio de Janeiro (RJ). The event, scheduled from 17 to 21 July, will have as theme, “CHANGE – make a difference!” and motto, “Go and make disciples among all nations” (Mt 28:19). The Encounter provides an ideal opportunity for the strengthening of the Marist charism through reflection and practice. It will also provide opportunities to share experiences with regard to the promotion of the rights of children and young people throughout the Marist world.

União Marista do Brasil – UMBRASIL, a body that links the three Provinces and District of Amazônia, will coordinate and organise CHANGE, working jointly with the Organising Commission to ensure an outstanding meeting. Emphasis is already being placed on the preparation of the young people who will attend the Encounter and World Youth Day.
