Marist Youth Gathering 2016: Let Me Dream



Weekend with 15 Marist schools of the US, Canada and Mexico

10/06/2016: United States

Nearly 300 people gathered during the last weekend of May for a Marist youth gathering at Marist College in New York. 

“We had a wonderful weekend,” affirmed Matt Fallon, the director of the Marist Youth Ministry of the USA Province.

“The theme “Let Me Dream” was inspired by the Casting Crowns song “Dream for You” and the first Marists dream at Fourvière 200 years ago,” he told the general house press office on June 2.

Young people from 15 Marist schools and parish youth groups of the provinces of the United States, Canada, and Mexico Occidental as well as brothers from Africa took part.  

A team of 23 Marist young adults helped animate the programme, while laity, Brothers, and two Marist Missionary Sisters gave support and helped in the workshops, keynote presentations, and activities. 

The students came from Archbishop Molloy, Central Catholic, Christopher Columbus HS, Marist HS Bayonne, Marist HS Chicago, Msgr. Pace HS, Mt. St. Michael Academy, Roselle Catholic HS, St. Joseph Academy, St. Joseph Regional HS, St. Mary’s HS, the youth group in East Harlem, as well as from schools of Canada and Mexico.

The gathering included keynote talks from Brother Patrick McNamara, Maureen Hagan and a panel discussion led by Brothers Hank Hammer and Al Rivera.

There were many workshops, moments of prayer, a square dance, a concert by the popular Christian band Array of Hope, Champagnat games and Mass presided by Father Richard LaMorte.

Superior General Brother Emili Turú sent a video message to the youth, in which he stresses the importance of having a dream.
