From the 2nd to the 6th June, the I Inter-American Conference of Marist Provincials and District Superiors (I CIAP) was held in Rome. It was an occasion to reflect together on religious life and mission as Marist religious and laity. The Provincials and the District Superiors of the American continent took part, as well as Brother Seán Sammon, Superior General, and his Council. Also present were Brothers Roque Brugnara and Valdicer Civa Fachi, as Secretaries.

The central theme of the CIAP was “The Identity of Marist Religious Life in America: challenges and perspectives”; it included several subdivisions: Consecrated life in America; Post-modernity and Marist mission today; Renewal and looking towards the future; all animated by the motto: “unity and mission”.
The CIAP has as its aim to offer means and places for ongoing formation and to create conditions of support between the Provincials and District Superiors, as well as discerning and promoting new pathways of religious life and of Marist mission in America, in communion with the directives of the Church, of the Institute and the calls of the world today.

This is not a new pathway for the CIAP which was preceded by ten Latin-American Conferences of Provincials that it will need to take into account. The difference is that the Conference has become inter-American through the integration of the United States of America and Canada. Political, economic and social differences did not emerge from the meeting, but rather the universality of the Marist mission and the proposition of the Gospel.
