Assembly of the Marist youth laity

29/03/2017: Brazil

From March 10 – 12, the first assembly of the Marist youth laity was held in Almirante Tamandaré in Brazil. Seventy youth from 17 cities took part as well as representatives from the Brasil Sul-Amazônia.

The main objective was the evaluation of the functioning of the organisation’s first year and the planning of the youth laity’s future steps of the Brasil Centro-Sul province.

The encounter kicked off with the motivations and the memory of the start of the Institute in La Valla and the mystic of the three floors of the Marist house located in the French town. Brother Jean Marcos asked the participants what reasons they had for being there today.

Throughout the assembly, both Brothers as well as laity sent messages to the youth

The provincial superior, Brother Joaquim Sperandio, spoke about a new path that is opening up for Marists 200 years after its foundation. Thinking about the youth, he affirmed that “the new beginning the Congregation speaks about can and must begin for youth. This mystic should move us towards encountering others.”

During the encounter, the youths were presented with a new proposal on the integration of lay Marists in diverse activities that they can take part in, be it encounters regarding formation or one off activities: associations, contents of formation, mystic, communication, apostolate, structure and representation.

The results of the discussions and the questions that were raised were recorded to facilitate a future evaluation and work formation with the pastoral sector.
