Nartional Encounter of the Marist fraternities of Mexico 2016

21/11/2016: Mexico

The members of the Marist fraternities of the two Provinces of Mexico met from October 28 to 30 in Guadalajara to deal with themes such as the vocation of the lay Marist. 

The 120 participants from 15 fraternities met in the Retreat House “Nazareth” under the guidance of Miguel Angel Villalobos, the coordinator of the Fraternity Chapagnat (Irapuato) which organized the encounter. 

The Superior General, Brother Emili Turú, participated in the encounter through a video. 


The Provincial from Western Mexico, Brother Miguel Angel Santos Villareal, spoke about the Marist Mission and described it saying  how to make Jesus Christ known and loved by means of a significant presence among the poor children and young people.  

Edison Oliveira, Marist lay person from Brazil, spoke about the role of the lay person in the Marist Charism, stressing that the Marist Laity are “those who after a long and intentioned moment of discernment, have decided to live a Christian spirituality and mission in the style of Mary, following the intuition of Marcelin Champagnat”.    

In the same way, he mentioned that this vocation “is born and develops by reading one’s own life through the light of the Spirit” and that the Marist vocation “allows us to live with simplicity, accepting everyone; with humility and pardoning, with modesty which help us to give sense to everything”.
