Reopening of the Novitiate in Jérémie



Novitiate opens 10 months after hurricane Matthew

15/09/2017: Haiti

Ten months after hurricane Matthew destroyed 80 per cent of the village, the Brothers in Haiti have reopened the novitiate in Jérémie.

The ceremony was presided by Bishop Gontrand Décoste, with the participation of Brother Luis Enrique Rodríguez as head of the Marist sector of Haiti and delegate of the superior general.

During the Mass, which was held on on Aug. 15, Br Luis Enrique received the six novices who have initiated their Marist formation in the year of the Marist bicentenary.

According to the novices, the reason why they want to consecrate their lives to God as Marist Brothers is “to continue todeepen their own knowledge and growth as people who can make them open their hearts to God’s love because they want to be with Him and because they want to be apostles for the benefit of His people.”

Brother Gustavo Martín Cerda Hernández, of the México Occidental province, underscored that the Brothers “are happy with the testimony and generosity of these young people, which makes us see that God continues to call and captivate young people in following Him.”
