This year, the educational community of the School Centre « H. Moisés Cisneros » thanked the Lord for its 10 years, during which boys and girls from the poor quarters of Gerardi and Altos de Santa Maria, in  San Pedro Ayampuc, some 30 km from Guatemala City, have received a good education marked by Marist values. There have been struggles and obstacles : the beginnings of the centre were very modest, but along the way, the Lord’s love has not been wanting. It has shown itself in the support of many Brothers and the solidarity of people who have made possible the development of this centre.

The celebrations of the 10th anniversary began on Wednesday, 5 June, with a simple march in the  Gerardi quarter where we recalled the different moments of the history of our school. On 6 June, we had the joy of celebrating the Eucharist in a truly festive atmosphere, with Fr Prudencio Rodriguez, friend of the Marist family. Then, the pupils presented a play about the school’s 10 years and various significant experiences of the first years and the present time, as well as other facts connected with the celebration of Saint Marcellin Champagnat. For this day, we appreciated the presence of various  persons who have been part of the centre’s history up to now, and the very special collaboration of the Marist personnel of the Marist Formation Centre, situated in the capital : they had organized themselves in good time to celebrate with us. We thank them wholeheartedly for their presence and generosity. Boys, girls, teachers and parents greatly appreciated this day, heightened by the presence of the group Caja Lúcida.

Friday 7, we had the joy of welcoming a delegation from the Guatemala High School College and the Marist School for sporting and Marist activities in true family spirit. We finished the celebrations on Saturday, at 8 in the evening, by presenting a cultural evening organised by the families and concluding with a « torito de fuego » (firework display).

Having joyfully celebrated these 10 years, we are committed to keep on struggling so that the most needy boys and girls can continue to profit from a good Christian education which opens for them the doors to a better future and lets them experience God’s great love for them. Thanks to all who made this feast possible : they are always welcome at the Hermano Moisés Cisneros School Centre.
