Forum on education and spirituality

25/09/2014: Spain

The Province of Compostela held its 1st Forum on education and spirituality under the title ‘Educating for Being’ from 4 to 6 September. The event took place in the Monastery of Poio (Poio, Pontevedra) with the collaboration of the Edelvives Group.

Those taking part were directors, co-ordinators of the Animation Teams, and teachers from all the educational works of the province, as well representatives of other Marist provinces with a presence in Spain and some other persons who had expressed an interest in taking part, including Br Emili Turú, Superior General of the Congregation.

class=imgshadowThe will of the Province of Compostela to educate in an innovative way in the spiritual dimension is already a reality. The Team of Animation and Spirituality defined in the last academic course the new framework of spirituality which is guiding the Province in this great educational challenge. It is called GIER, after the river which flows past the foundation house of the Institute at the Hermitage in France.

The image of the water flowing along the course of the Gier represents perfectly the objective of the framework which “has the vocation of a river”: born from the roots of Marist Christian spirituality in order to “inundate the life” of all who today form part of the Marist Family of Compostela.
