Marist formation for new school personnel

13/06/2013: Philippines

Notre Dame of Marbel University (NDMU), a Marist institution in southern Philippines, provided a privileged environment for the introduction of the Marist values and the Champagnat charism to the school personnel: those newly hired and those who have worked at the University within 3 years. This Induction Program initiated by the Personnel Office gathered 60 probationary personnel last May 30-31, 2013 at  Mountain Lake Eco Resort, Lake Sebu, South Cotabato. The event was a venue to welcome the new hires to the University and to make them feel the warmth of family spirit, shared and deepened in the course of the 2-day Marist formation sessions.

The key themes deepened during the sessions were the awareness of one’s call to holiness; recognition of the future as communion of brothers and laity; and  the strengthening of co-responsibility for the development of Marist life, spirituality, and mission.  The document Gathered Around The Same Table guided the formative journey of the participants.

Facilitating the personnel formation processes were Ms. Elma Rafil, Ms. Petrocil Manzano, and Ms. Agnes Reyes.  Dr. Andres Magallanes, the Executive Vice President of the University, gave an input on living a Christ-centered life, a value central in the life of every Champagnat Marist.  

The key role played by the school personnel in keeping alive the Champagnat tradition and in the transmission of the Marist values is important.  The dynamic process of assimilating and continuing the living-out of the Marist values by the succeeding generations of students and university staff find its roots on  how well they are prepared today to communicate, by their way of life, the cherished values of the Champagnat Marists.  For such context, the University puts value and has a strong commitment in the implementation of an on-going Marist Formation Program, not only with the probationary personnel but also with the other members of the NDMU community: the junior and senior personnel, the students, and the alumni as well.
