Meeting of the Solidarity Sub-commission

05/11/2013: Brazil

The meeting of the Solidarity Sub-commission took place in Porto Alegre from 25 to 29 September. This is one of the sub-commissions of the new structure of animation of Marist America. The others are the sub-commissions of evangelisation, education and administration. These four sub-commissions are linked to the commission of mission. The idea of this structure, as you have guessed, is to move forward together, in the same direction, as Marists of America, while respecting the diversity of the different provinces.

This meeting included several points on the agenda :

* To prepare the programme of the 5th Inter-American Meeting of Hearts in Solidarity, which will be held at the end of October 2014 in Ecuador;
* To establish a process and material to be sent to each of the provinces for the preparation of this meeting. This process should be underway in a short time;
* To finalise the French version of the document : « Marist path of solidarity in the Americas : rights of children and youth ». The Spanish and Portuguese versions have already been published. The French version is all ready and will be printed soon. There remains the English which should also be able to be completed soon.

Those who compose this sub-commission of solidarity are :

Ma. del Socorro Alvarez Noriega,Mexico
Juan Carlos Pellon,Peru
Br Miguel Antonio Orlandi,Brasil
Br Réal Sauvageau, Canada

All took place in an atmosphere of work both intense and fraternal. This allowed us to attain our  objectives as well as to visit some social works in Porto Alegre and even enjoy some hours as tourists in the region...
