Brothers Today Interamerican Subcommission

11/02/2016: Argentina

The annual meeting of the Inter-American Subcommittee Brothers Today ended on Feb. 5 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, after a week of meetings and reflections shared among the six representatives of the provinces of the Americas. It is an advisory team of the Inter-American Conference of Provincials (CIAP).

They analysed reports of two encounters made during 2015 inherent to the teamwork: Encounter of the vocational ministry in Guatemala in September; and the International Colloquium on Marist Formation in L'Hermitage in October.

The meeting took the opportunity to review the Strategic Plan of the Inter-American Commission of Brothers and Laity. Participants also looked at the Plan of Initial and Ongoing Formation for Brothers aged between 40 and 60.

The Subcommittee examined the programme to be suggested at the Encounter of Formators from Oct. 31 - Nov. 4 in Curitiba, Brazil.

Participants also completed a document on the Renewal of Community, which each administrative unit can use to send the Subcommittee Brothers Today the new experiences that nourish “a new way of being brothers.”

It is clear that in relation to the essential topic in the initial formation, speaking about "Brothers" also means speaking about "lay".

The definition of the Marist lay vocation is a commitment...

The six members of the Subcommittee are Brothers Luis Felipe González Ruiz (México Central), Bernard Baudin (Canada), Oscar Rafael Montenegro Cuevas (Santa María de los Andes), CarlosRafael Vélez (América Central), Raúl José Schönfeld Hergenreder (Cruz del Sur) and Natalino Guilherme de Souza (Brasil Centro-Norte).
