Brothers of America follow a joint formation course in Cochabamba

05/03/2013: Bolivia

From March to June, 14 Brothers of the Marist Provinces of America will take part in an interprovincial formation course in Cochabamba, Bolivia. The period, called « a journey of  formation on the way to perpetual profession », precedes the definitive  consecration of the young Brothers. The objective is to facilitate times of sharing and reflection on the vocational journey prior to the definitive consecration.

The formation periods will be assured by the Superior General, Br Emili Turú, Brothers Josep Maria Soteras and Eugène Kabanguka, General Councillors, and Brothers Ataide José de Lima (Brasil Centro-Norte), Francisco Javier (Norandina) and Lécio José Heckler (Rio Grande do Sul).

The initiative responds to a call of the Interprovincial Conference of the Americas and the XXI General Chapter, in the sense of promoting  experiences which take advantage of the international nature of the Institute. The participants will meet in the House of Youth of the « Fé e Alegria » (Faith and Joy) Foundation, for times in common, talks, and three periods of retreat and mission to the interior of the country.

The course is intended as well as a community experience of personal development, reinforcement of Marist identity, and of activities of solidarity and prayer.

The group is composed of representatives of the Provinces of : « Brasil Centro-Norte », « Brasil Centro-Sul », « Rio Grande do Sul », « Norandina » and « América Central ».

Once the time in Bolivia is completed, the Brothers will organise themselves in their respective countries for the taking of perpetual vows, for their final « yes » to the Lord in the Marist Institute.
