Marial forum in the Champagnat College of Bogota

15/06/2007: Colombia

On the 16th May, the celebration of a “Marial forum” took place in the Champagnat College of Bogota, thanks to the College’s Ministry Team. Two hundred and eighty representatives from twenty-one educational entities from the capital participated in this forum. The majority of these entities were colleges run by parishes or by religious communities, others under the direction of laypeople and family parents. Quite a magnificent “infrastructure” put in place on this very day allowed for this positive initiative: managerial staff, teachers, young people, administrative personnel, Ministry Team…

There were ten students from Year Ten and one or two teachers from each educational institution participating in the forum. Our College provided thirty groups of students who, as well as taking part, were excellent guides and accompaniers for the other participants.

There were simple and brief dynamics of integration, a projection on the “Magnificat” and the presentation of a report-reflection by Brother Ramón Benseny on: “Young people called and invited by Mary to a New Evangelisation”.

Then, after a very convivial refreshment shared by the young people and their teachers, inter-college groups were formed to prepare and share the workshop indicated by Brother Ramón Benseny at the end of his report. The work was done in both inter-college groups and in three socialisation groups for the subsequent sharing in the drama hall.

The sharing was rich, creative, idealistic, youthful and with profound Marial resonances. At the end, after the presentation by different groups, Brother Ramón summarised the most significant points of the presentations and challenged all the young people about their commitment in a New Evangelisation.

It was an interesting and positive initiative that was offered, as a stimulant and pastoral encouragement to all our educational communities. A beautiful and youthful bouquet of flowers for Mary in this month of May.
