The Animation Team of MChFM

16/03/2017: France

The Animation Team of the Champagnat Movement of the Marist Family (MChFM) in France is formed by ten persons.  They represent the different regions of France that is the North, the Center and the South.  They also represent the different Marist realities; the world of the young with the schools and colleges or high schools, sharing with the communities of Brothers and life in the mixed communities.   

The Team meets three or four times a year according to the program of the year. 

The principal objectives: to connect the fourteen Fraternities, encourage those that have some difficulties and to open to the Fraternities of Belgium and the groups of Marist life in Catalonia (Gerona).  To organize the general Assemblies, the regional meetings and the Marist planning for holidays of July, to be attentive and respond to the propositions of the Institute.    


Meeting in Lyon 

The Team met on Tuesday, February 28 in Lyon in the Provincial House.  It was the first encounter of the year 2017 after the enlarged Assembly of November 2016.  

The essential objectives of this meeting: above all, the organization of the life of the Fraternities for the year and therefore, to draw up a plan of animation which consists in: 

* Projecting the regional encounters of autumn (North, Center and South) which permit the Fraternities to meet by Regions.  These times of encounter can also provide moments of formation which touch on the themes of the Institute for the year. 

* To finalize the arrangements for the Marist holidays.  This year, they will be in Auvergne, a beautiful region of volcanos in the center of France. 

* To review, examine the articles of the bulletin Frat-Echos, a true bond of union among the Fraternities. 

* To reflect on the way in which the Fraternities have been contacted for the different pre-chapter stages.
