PUCPR offers a new service of Marist formation to the Institute



Course on the Marist Charism and Principles of Education

21/02/2014: Brazil

On 3 February 2014, extramural classes began on the Marist Charism and Principles of Education. After almost two years of intense preparation, it has been possible to begin classes in this new service of Marist formation offered by the PUCPR to the whole Institute. It was an initiative of the Marist International Network of Higher Education which entrusted the creation of this course to the   PUCPR. The financial and human resources to help PUCPR provide this service have been the responsibility of the Province of Brasil Centro-Sul, which once again has provided the resources necessary for making it a reality.

The names of those taking part in this new experience of Marist formation in the   Institute, offered by PUCPR online, in four languages and shared by brothers and laity, are worth recording. Here are their names and the Provinces to which they belong.

Santa María de los Andes: Claudio Enrique Castillo Faúndez, Gladys Marcela Hormazábal Cruz,  Víctor Guillermo Vidal Núñez, Raúl Amaya Rivera.  América Central: Ana Isabel Saborío Jenkins, Mynor Estuardo González Polanco, Ricardo Alfredo Mendoza Martínez.

Seven women and 25 men, 10 of whom Marist brothers, have enrolled in the course. The languages chosen are distributed as follows: SP 15, PT 14, FR 3. The diversity of the Institute is represented by 15 different nationalities: Argentinian (1), Brasilian (13), Chilian (4), Colombian (1), Congolese (1), Costa Rican (1), Spanish (3), Filipino (1), Guatemalan (1), Malagasy (1), Mozambican (1), Paraguayan (1), Salvadorian (1), Uruguayan (1), Venezuelan (1).

The course has two tutors: Brother Ivo Strobino, who will cater for students of the Portuguese and French languages, and Brother Joaquín López Barriuso, who provide this service for the Spanish-speaking ones. Some of the brothers and laity taking part in the course will also have the opportunity in time to act as tutors in subsequent editions of the course.

This service of PUCPR to the Institute is seen as part of the preparations for the celebration of the bicentenary of the foundation of the Institute, to be held in 2017.
