Affiliation of M. Nicolas Dessypris to the Institute of Marist Brothers

08/04/2016: Greece

On Saturday, March 19, 2016, the Community of Marist Brothers in Greece truly lived an exceptional moment.  In fact, that day, the Marist Brothers opened a new road.  During a very simple celebration that took place in the Community of Agia Kyriaki, M. Nicolas Dessypris, who is an Orthodox Christian, was affiliated to the Institute of Marist Brothers. 

Brother Pere Ferré, our next Provincial Brother, the mother and the brother of M. Dessypris, the members of the Council of Direction of the High School Léonin de Néa Smyrni and all the Brothers of the two communities of Athens were present at this ceremony. 

At the beginning Brother Matthieu Levantinos presented the reasons why the Marist Brothers of Greece, but above all the Provincial Council of l’Hermitage and the General Council in Rome have joyfully accepted the affiliation of M. Nicolas Dessypris to the Institute of Marist Brothers. 

We all have recognized officially that M. Nicolas Dessypris truly lives the Marist charism.  during all these years that he has been among us, we have understood that he lives his Christian life with all the Marist characteristics: availability, simplicity, modesty, love for work, and above all, humility, in other words, he lives the vocation of the Lay Marists.  

During the ceremony Brother Pere Ferré spoke to thank M. Nicolas Dessypris for his presence during 35 years in a Marist Establishment and to offer him the Diploma of Affiliation to the Institute of Marist Brothers.  Then, M. Dessypris expressed with emotion his gratitude and his joy, because he had had the chance to live with persons whom he has esteemed and loved.
