Marist Africa Masters of Postulants Course

16/09/2004: Kenya

The Province of África Austral / Southern African has organized a course for Masters of Postulants in Africa for the second time. The first was three years ago. The course lasts two months, August and September. The participants, seven in number, are mainly young brothers who have passed through the Marist International Centre (MIC), Nairobi, Kenya. Only two of them are presently involved in formation work. The goal of the course is to help the participants acquire skills and self-confidence in how to help postulants on the following themes:
§ deepening their relationship with Jesus through the Bible, community prayer, personal prayer and their relationship with Father Champagnat.
§ upgrading their basic understanding of the creed, Christian doctrine, morality, and the Sacraments.
§ understanding how human beings develop and the realisation that ultimately it is Jesus and our faith in him that enables us to live fully human lives.
§ helping them get in touch with their own story and the things that hinder or promote human development.
§ an understanding of the religious vocation and the structures on which it is built: Love of Jesus, Mary and the Founder, Community life and Mission.
Hopefully the skills and knowledge that the participants acquire will enable them to make these topics relevant and meaningful to young African candidates who want to follow Jesus in the Marist way.
The participants are: Kpunsa Stephen (Cameroon), Randriantsoalaivoavy Ernest (Madagascar), Gandebo Cyprian Bankakuu (Ghana), Nvo Nvo Mangue Juan (Equatorial Gunea), Nteziyaremye Jean Pierre (Rwanda), Mwambucha Frank (Malawi), Kenagwa Patrick (Kenya). The directors are Brother Vitus Osuji (Marist West African International Novitiate, Ghana) and Brother Christopher Zimmermann (South Africa)
