Dare to Dream: International Marist Youth Meeting



Online preparation for youth to celebrate Fourvière promise

10/05/2016: General House

Organisers are offering youth online material to help them prepare for the international Marist youth gathering that will take place in Lyon from July 17 – 23. 

There are eight worksheets available on the gathering’s website www.lyon2016daretodream.com for youth, including those who are not able to participate. 

According to Brother Miguel Ángel Espinosa Barrera, of the secretariat of mission, “youths who are not able to physically take part in the meeting, are highly encouraged to reflect on these worksheets to spiritually accompany the other youths.”

“All young Marist can access this space of reflection, encounter and dialogue to celebrate the Fourvière Promise with their group, to experience it in their life,” he added. “The 400 representatives of the Marist groups of the whole world will have the opportunity to share their experience with other youths in July.”

The “Itinerary” is a roadmap that involves five themes titled “The World of Young People, The World Today, The Church, Fourvière, and The founders and pioneers.”

Each theme has five perspectives titled “From our experience, that is, from the everyday reality of Young people, From the Beatitudes (This is the central theme of the Pope´s message to the WYD), From the Marist Bicentennial of the promise of Fourvière, From a Marian spirit, From Prayer.”

The worksheets are titled ‘A look at our reality today,’ ‘Links with those who suffer,’ ‘A house for everyone,’ ‘A life-giving promise,’ ‘A spiritual teacher of mercy,’ ‘Jeanne Marie Chavoin,’ ‘The pioneers SMSM “Prophets of Yesterday and Today”,’ and ‘Through Marcellin’s eyes.’ 

Around 400 youths from the four Marist branches – the Marist Brothers, Fathers, Sisters and Missionary Sisters – will participate in the encounter in Dare to Dream.

Two hundred and fifty of them are from the branch of the Marist Brothers.

The encounter will focus on the celebration of the promise at Fourvière 200 years ago by a few young seminarians, and the preparation of the bicentennial of the founding of the Marist Brothers.

The gathering will take place in the Marist School of Sainte Marie Lyon – La Solitude, located on the hill of Fourvière and the youth will stay at the Lycée Aux Lazaristes high school.
