A meeting full of dynamism, enthusiasm and friendship



Third national camp of ‘Friends on the March’

09/09/2005: Colombia

From the 27th June to the 1st July we met in the city of Cali (Club Comfenalco - Valle de Lili): 247 people to take part in the third national camp of ‘Friends on the march’. It was five days during which the brothers, animators and friends (members) had the chance to share all the mystique of this time: the setting-up of tents, the songs, the games, the prayer, the living at a high altitude, the possibility of deepening one’s life in Jesus, our best friend, in Mary, our Good Mother, and in Marcellin Champagnat, the experienced Guide. These were the elements that made our camp a meeting full of dynamism, enthusiasm and friendship, with the joy of being and feeling oneself to be Marist. This camp is the third one to be realised at the national level with members of the movement coming from all the Marist communities and works of the country. Participants came from Medellín, Manizales, Armenia, Ibagué, Bogota, Cali, Popayán, Pasto, Ipiales and Sibundoy. This activity was prepared and carried out by the dynamic national team of ‘Friends on the march’, supported by the leaders from different cities. Each activity was led by members of the team who were totally involved in this pastoral work.
We hope that the camp was a chance to energise and strengthen the formation work in values and in evangelisation thet ‘Friends on the march’ realise with each adolescent in the city where they are present. ‘Friends on the march’ will train you in service and in friendship, to learn how to give the best of yourself...
