“We are born of Solidarity, and we will be born again for Solidarity”



Encounter of directors and animators of the community of the Norandina Province

04/12/2016: Colombia

As part of the celebration of the Marist Bicentennial, the Council of the Province of Norandina, together with the commissions of mission and solidarity, held a meeting with the Brothers and Lay people entrusted with the leadership and animation of the communities and Marist works in the Norandina Province.

From Oct. 25 – 30, 70 Laity and Brothers from Venezuela, Colombia and Ecuador gathered in Fusagasugá, Colombia, to renew the option for Gospel solidarity in all places where Marists are present in the Norandina Province, through a commitment centered on Jesus and thus helping the rebirth of the dawn.

For this meeting, the theme of solidarity was addressed as the main theme, which has marked the life of the Institute and its mission from the Marist origins.

The meeting had as a reference the event Montagne, an experience that marked the life of Father Champagnat and impelled him to the foundation of the Little Brothers of Mary.

We approach the issue from three dimensions of solidarity; first of all the ecology followed by a workshop on good living facilitated by Marco Raúl Mejía and finally a reflection on the document of the Marist Institute in America on solidarity entitled “Paths of Marist Solidarity in the Americas: Children and Young People with Rights.”

The encounter’s participants concluded the reflection affirming, “It is time that, as the Marist Province of Norandina, we keep our eyes open, our feet well fixed on the ground and above all, our hearts full of the Gospel so that we do not pass by our Montagne. Let us rather ask ourselves, let us have a meaningful and transformative presence with them.
