The official launching of the local phase of the 2nd  International Marist Mission Assembly (IMMA) in the province of « Brasil Centro-Norte » took place on 6 May, by means of a video-conference transmitted from the Provincial House. The participants were brothers, directors, collaborators and youth of the school and social establishments and Marist communities of 16 States and the Federal District.

In his opening address, the Provincial, Br Wellington Mousinho de Medeiros, insisted on the importance of the local phase of the IMMA for the Province and recalled that, at this time, all should be united in communion with the Superior General, Emili Turú, and his Council. « The Assembly places before us the challenge of a renewed consecrated life, which promotes a new way of being brother, in a new relationship of communion between brothers and laity, and with a significant evangelizing presence among children and young people », he said.

The Director of Provincial Organisations, Br James Pinheiro, said that the local phase fostered reflection on and study of the assembly in the Province. « We are invited to « kindle » our hearts, to be flames which enthuse and set fire to other hearts », he said, referring to the Assembly logo, the fire.

The Assembly will develop in four stages. In the Province, the local phase will be held from May 2013 to April 2014, to study in depth the topics proposed by the IMMA : spirituality, vocation, new relationship and evangelisation. The second stage will be the provincial phase, in May 2014, to present the summaries of the local phase made in the establishments and to choose two delegates to take part in the event. The International Marist Mission Assembly properly speaking will be held from 17 to 27 September. After the event, the last stage, the regional phase, will take place for sharing the post-assembly proposals and mandates.
