Strategic planning of Marist Life

13/03/2019: General House

The Secretariat of the Laity, formed by Raúl Amaya (Director), Pep Buetas and Agnes Reyes (Coordinators), participated of the Works of the Collaborative week between the General Council and the Secretariats and departments of the General House, from February 18 o 22, .  Raúl shares with us the lived experience during those days. 


Our work and dialogue were inspired in the calls of the XXII General Chapter, in the initiatives given by the Strategic Planning of the General Administration and in the orientations given to us by the animators every morning.  We advanced adjusting the results that we hope to obtain in each objective, in organizing the calendar of activities and in the collaboration or support that we will establish with other Secretariats for greater synergy.  

One of the aspects more emphasized was the marvelous or great work carried out jointly during the whole week with the Secretariat “Brothers Today (Br. Tony León and Br. Angel Medina), with CMI (Br. Jeff Crowe) and with our link Councilors  (Brothers Oscar, Joao, and Sylvian) and which was promoted by Br. Ernesto Sánchez, Superior General, and the General Council.  They are the first steps of the Area Marist Life.  

The environment was very pleasant, of fraternity, shared dialogue and communion Brothers and Laity.  The perception that we have kept is the profound desire of all to continue on this path of encounter of the common vocation as Marists and to strengthen our specific vocations, but always projecting together a future of communion of Laity and Brothers. 

To continue in this dialogue we agreed, as Area of Marist Life, an encounter of several days in July 2019 during which we can deepen on a series of initiatives and challenges that we have stated and where we will have the opportunity also to live the spirit of fraternity among us.  

These days have been a gift from the Lord, because we experience the Church of a Marian face: simple, joyful, integrating, where the bread of fraternity is shared.   In our work and projects we had present in our heart the Brothers and Laity of today and of tomorrow, who day after day, give the best of their person  to continue the mission of Marcelin: To make known and loved Jesus Christ .  We walk together as Marists of Champagnat accompanied by his Spirit, which encourages and strengthens us
