Initiatives for lay Marist formation that are being developed were discussed, including the making of a regional programme for lay Marist formation delivered locally by formators that will be created next year in Melanesia and the Pacific.

Talks covered also three initiatives regarding initial formation for Brothers, the establishment of a Brothers Today committee and an invitation for younger Brothers to gather to reflect on the future of the mission in region in January.
