The theme for this session was  Young people and Consecrated Religious Life, around the Biblical text : « Jesus replied: 'If you want to be perfect, go sell what you possess and give the proceeds to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven ; then come and follow me' » (Mt 19,21).

Organised by the Commission of Consecrated Life of UMBRASIL, the Meeting was intended to :

* offer the formators times for exchange, formation, prayer and friendly sharing, in order to unify the formation processes of Marist Brasil ;
* foster the living of fraternity ;
*attend to the common formation of the formator brothers ;
* reflect on and enumerate topics in keeping with the processes of formation ;
* become familiar with and integrate the guidelines of theSecretariat Brothers today.

The BrotherProvincials of the three Provinces of Brasil took part in the Meeting, as well as Br Ernesto Sánchez, Councillor General, who presented some lines of animation of the General Council, and spoke in particular about the projects of the Secretariat Brothers today.

The programme touched on the topics of the Consecrated Life, youth and the new technologies. The time proved opportune for sharing at the interprovincial level on the Plan of Initial Formation and for having a round table on the identity of the religious brother.
