New horizons for pour Marist Evangelization in America



Inter-American Sub-commission of Marist Evangelization

21/04/2014: Canada

Last March, the meeting of the Inter-American Sub-commission of Evangelization was held in Canada. It is composed of Br Felix Roldán, of the Province of Canada, Carlos Ulises Centeno López, of the Province of Mexico Central, Miriam Gracía, of the District of Paraguay, João Carlos de Paula, of UMBRASIL, and Mercia Procopio of UMBRASIL who is the link with the Inter-American Mission Commission.

The objective of the meeting was to study the Strategic Plan of the Inter-American Mission Commission, approved by CIAP, and review the Sub-commission’s Strategic Plan in order to specify the responsibilities and tasks which will allow a better adjustment with the Administrative Units and promote initiatives of evangelization in America in the new perspective of 2017.

One of the activities was the presentation of the evangelization projects in course in the Provinces and Districts; there was also the preparation of a consultation which will soon be sent out in order to find out about the programmes drawn up in view of the New Methods of Evangelization and the contexts of vulnerability, inculturation and attention to children, adolescents and young people.

The Sub-commission has also begun to prepare the programme for the VI Meeting of the Marist Youth Ministry (MYM) in America, to be held in August 2015, following the meetings in Curitiba 2004, Mendes 2006, Lima 2008, Guatemala 2010 and Campinas in 2012.

During the meeting, we had the opportunity to hear a bit more about the Marist Mission in Canada and visited the residence of  Willowdale, an experience of community life of young adults taking place in Montréal. The community of  12 university students and three brothers opened the door of their house to share their daily life with us.

We thank the Provincial of Canada, Br Bernard Baudin, and his Council for the hospitality and   attention given us in order to hold the meeting in the best conditions.
