Formation of Marist Leaders in the mission in Europe



Where your gifts and your happiness meet with the needs of the world, the purpose of your life is there

01/04/2019: France

On March 17 of 2019, the 3ª edition has begun of the Itinerary of leaders for Marist  formation in the mission organized by the European Council of Mission.  

Seventeen people of the Marist provinces of Compostela, l'Hermitage, Ibérica and Mediterránea arrived at the house of L´ Hermitage with a great deal of enthusiasm and desire to learn, for a week of living side by side and recognising the international reality of our work. In the course of a few days we immersed ourselves in the  pattern of leadership that was Champagnat's and his method of confronting the day to day problems, such as leading from oneself, listening and looking with generosity for the good of the group, especially through example.  

These days, we have been conscious of Marcellin and his project of life which was nearer than ever; thanks to the welcome, to the affection and the sharing of the Brothers embracing the whole group, to make us feel at home, changing our outlook, helping us to find everywhere something deeper which helps us to know him better. The reports and workshops were carried out in the course of the week under the leadership of Dña. Ángela Sestrini and Brothers Emili Turú, Diogène Musine and Benito Arbués deepening us in the leaders that we want to be. 

After visiting places like la Valla and Rosey, many questions arose in my mind, Who am? Who do I want to be? What is my vocation? What kind of leader am I? The place is developing, a step toward the future, without losing the view of the past and being completely aware of the reality and current society, something fundamental for an institution that doesn't lose sight of its origins. 

The following weeks of the course will finish in Rome in October of 2020, these are focused on improving the administration, seeing the organization at European level and establishing international networks, everything that will allow us to have a global vision of the Institute at the present time and to continue with the dream of Marcellin leading our teams, always with help from our Good Mother and from the Marist charism.
