EIJM – Report of July 18

On Sunday, July 17, began the International Meeting « Dare to Dream », which brought together approximately 450 young Marists who arrived from the 5 Continents in response to the invitation of the 4 Branches of the Marist Family. 


Monday, July 18, 2016 

After the assembling prayer, the morning was dedicated to the presentation of all the groups, Provinces or countries of origin of the participants. What a great emotion it is to become aware that beyond frontiers, languages and cultures, the intuitions and the Charisma of our Foundresses and Founders continue to move, to affect so many young people throughout the world.    

For some of the dynamics, the young were distributed in small communities or groups of about twenty to facilitate the exchanges and sharing.  

And so then, distributed, the participants were invited to discover the 4 Branches of the Marist family: The Marist Sisters and the Missionary Sisters of the Marist Mission, who are more simply called SMSM, the Marist Priests and finally the Marist Brothers.  

Each Congregation was installed under a tent to present its Founder or Foundress, its places where it was established and its specificities.  After this time of discovery, the groups were able to exchange and share on their discoveries of the different Marist realities.   

After a personal time of silence and appropriation, we gathered for the Eucharist.  It was an intense moment of prayer, of sharing, of communion and of fervor. 

The day was completed, ended with the first part of the « Marist Festival » which showed the value of several groups and countries which offered us a spectacle full of color, made of songs, dances and traditional costumes.
