Being a Lay Marist



Brothers and Lay Marists share their Marist vocation

08/03/2019: Sri Lanka

From the 15th to the 17th of February, a group of 30 Brothers and Lay Marists from Sri Lanka took part in a seminar on the lay vocation, fraternity and community led by Brother Réal Sauvageau and the lay Marist, Christian Boutin from Canada. 

Most of the topics for reflection and other contributions dealt with in the seminar, were based on the recent document entitled "Being a Lay Marist: suggestions for  accompanying vocational processes and to proposing  formation routes", which  is a reference text for all Marists of Champagnat, particularly to encourage and to accompany the lay Marist vocation. 

During the workshop, Mr. Christian, also talked about his own experiences preparing lay Marists to assume the  responsibilities of their vocation. 

After the three day session of group analysis and discussions, the Brothers and Lay Marists reached the conclusion that both groups shared the same charism of Saint Marcellin Champagnat.
