The first Meeting of the International Commission for Marist Youth Ministry took place in Rome from the 26th to the 31st of July. The purpose of this meeting was to draw up a guiding docu-ment for the whole Institute. It was a week of intense and fruitful work on behalf of the young people whom God confides to us.

The commission is made up of the following Marists who represent the five continents in which we are present: Br. Ramón Rubies (Spain) and Br. Micheael Schmalzl (Germany) for Europe; Br. Rommel Ocasiones (Philippines) for Asia; Br. Ifeanyi Mbaegbu (Nigeria) for Africa; Paul Salmon (Australia) for Oceania; Fabiano Incerti (Brazil) and Br. Raúl Goitea (Argentina) for America. Participants from the General Administration were: Brs. Emili Turú (Councillor Gene-ral and head of the Mission Commission), Br. Juan Miguel Anaya (Procurator General and Se-cretary of the Mission Commission) and Br. Ernesto Sánchez Barba (Head of the Vocations Se-cretariate).

Our mode of working was impregnated with marist spirit in that it began with the experience which each one brought: we listened to one another, shared and debated with one another. At the same time we respected the pace, the pathway and the process characterising each re-gion. We firstly reached agreement as to what we understood by Marist Youth Ministry, and then we dedicated ourself fully to the work of preparing the outline for the document which we will endeavour to write from the contribution of all, with a view to ensuring its completion by December 2008.

We believe that this is an opportune time to promote the story and the dream of Champagnat, and to effect a more fruitful presence amongst our young people as Marcellin would have wan-ted.
