We are excited about the future



XI Encounter of Marist Fraternities of América Central

29/11/2017: El Salvador

The Marist Province of América Central has just had its XI Provincial Encounter of Marist Fraternities from Nov. 10 – 12.

Around 200 fraternal people from Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Honduras met to live intensely, with great energy and enthusiasm, the end of the La Valla Year and the Bicentenary.

El Salvador, known as “the little Tom Thumb of the Americas,” stretched out its arms to welcome us as a family.

Under the slogan “we are excited about the future,” we take seriously, the calls of the General Chapter, which was presented to us by Brother Omar Peña and Nohemy Pinto, who participated in it.

Under the theme “La Valla ... a call to interiority” we spent a whole day learning a little more about this key dimension of the person, not only theoretically, but above all, experiential: interiority exercises, contemplative dance, workshops ... We ended the day by standing before the Lord in prayer, tired but happy.

If we must highlight something of these wonderful days, it is undoubtedly joy and fraternity. Marcellin smiles at us, yes, but he also urges us to respond, as Champagnat Movement of the Marist Family, to the challenges we face today and not to be afraid of the future, filling us with courage and courage to be builders of it.
