International Gathering of Marist Youth



Appeals of IYMM for The Marist Institute

27/09/2013: General House
IMYM | 17-21 July 2013

During the celebration of 21 July, the Marist youth gathered in Rio de Janeiro for the International Marist Youth Meeting addressed to the Institute, through its Superior General, Br Emili Turu, some « calls » which indicate new directions for the future of Marist Youth Ministry. These calls are the fruit of the dialogue and sharing among those taking part in the meeting – youth, brothers and laity. They are divided into two parts : appeals to the Institute and appeals to the Regions.

Appeals of IYMM for The Marist Institute

1. To strengthen the Marist mission so that young people, lay people, brothers and sisters continue preaching the good news.
2. To find new ways for the young Marists, by knowing the legacy of Champagnat, to be close to the most vulnerable ones.
3. To cultivate the gift of listening to meet the needs of youths and to find concrete answers that encourage the integration among young people, lay people, brothers and sisters.
4. To promote a space for consultation and deliberation with the youths, through the creation of a Marist Juvenile Undersecretary linked to the Secretariat of Missions.
5. To promote exchange among the Administrative Units (young people, lay people, brothers and sisters) to strengthen the internationality of the Marist Institute.
