Marist Province of Norandina

03/09/2005: Colombia

On the 12th August in the city of Bogotá we finally realised a dream that had begun five years ago with the beginning of the Formation Plan for laypeople in Colombia. During these years several groups were formed in order to come to a greater awareness of Marcellin Champagnat. Through the group sharing, they not only experienced a formation process but they grew fraternally, spiritually and in solidarity. They are now true FRATERNITIES.
This growth to maturity accompanied by the necessary commitment led to the FIRST ASSEMBLY OF MARIST LAITY in the Province of Norandina, which was held from the 12th to the 15th August. It was an experienced that brought together 294 people from 20 fraternities from different cities of the country including Sibundoy, Ipiales, Pasto, Popayán, Ibagué, Manizales, Armenia, Medellín and Bogotá. A delegation from Ecuador and one from Venezuela, representing the different Marist works existing in the two countries, were also able to participate. A group of 36 brothers and some of their families also participated in this assembly.
From the very moment of the opening hymn we could perceive the family atmosphere that characterises the meetings of our fraternities. The times of prayer were very meaningful and were accompanied by a Marian pilgrimage on the Saturday evening, moving through the neighbourhood streets close to Champagnat College. As we moved by, local people joined our pilgrimage following Our Good Mother and praying the rosary.
