Marist Postulancy of Jérémie

09/11/2012: Haiti

After a week of integration and in a family atmosphere, the Marist Postulancy of Jérémie had its official beginning on Saturday, 29 September. From very early, the families of the first year postulants began to arrive, together with the brothers of the communities of Dame Marie and Latibolière.


First of all, the second year postulants and Brothers Luis Enrique and Frisnel, presented the Postulancy’s reason for being. What it is and what we aiming at. Then, in a simple ceremony, the first year postulants received as  a symbol of their entry into the postulancy a little wooden cross engraved with the Marist M. The brothers who provided their accompaniment were entrusted with investing them with the cross. And to finish, in a very Marist style, we went on to share the bread (in this case, a delicious fry-up) and the wine of the feast (which was not wine but Prestige, the national beer).

These are the postulants who are beginning this year to seek to give life to Marcellin’s dream: In 2nd year, Dimmy Frederic, Mayliko Livette, from Dame Marie, and Louis Oscar Paul, from Jérémie; in 1st year, Philippe Mackinson Sylvestre and Vilaire Sejour, both born in Dame Marie, but coming from Puerto Príncipe and Jérémie, respectively.

The team accompanying them is formed of Brothers Luis Enrique Rodríguez, Jaliscan by birth and  “cachanilla” by adoption, Gilles Lacasse, Canadian with great experience of Haiti (one of the founders of the sector), Rafael Álvarez, Afro-Asian-Mexican, and temporarily, Frisnel Walter, who continues sharing his experience as formator of the postulators.
