1st Meeting of Presences and Social Programmes in Marist Europe (III)

09/11/2005: Spain - Photo gallery

Guardamar, 1st November 2005. AMEstaún.
The meeting brought together people who are responsible for social works but it seemed difficult from the start to determine the exact responsibilities of those called to this meeting. This had given an atmosphere of equality where one could feel collectively responsible for the work achieved

The places and the programmes of works about which we are speaking here in various Provinces vary a great deal as to the people they are aimed at, the way they are carried out and their structures. The only common things are that they are social and Marist. These two words are so vast that they do not define exactly what is specific in each convocation. One could say the same thing about the adjective European since Marist Europe does not correspond to the Europe of political borders.
It is certain that the characteristics indicated previously are also shared by a lot of other educational works in Provinces, but which already have solid structures, the fruit of a profound reflection and good co-ordination for many years. On the contrary, during the last twenty years, new places of insertion have appeared and one has felt the need to consolidate them by joining them together.

According to the data of October 2005, the brothers and laypeople in Europe look after 988 children less than 12 years of age, 523 adolescents from 12 to 18 years of age and 466 young adults.
