Courses for educators, youth animators and members of the fraternities

27/12/2007: El Salvador

The VIth Provincial Meeting of Marist fraternities of MCHFM took place in San Salvador (El Salvador), on 9th, 10th and 11th of November 2007. 165 people took part, consisting of members of the laity and Brothers belonging to the fraternities of Guatemala, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico and El Salvador.
The theme of the meeting revolved around three central ideas: calls to the laity by the Episcopal Conference in their meeting held in Aparecida, the present and future of Marist laity starting from the contributions made in Mendes, and the process of formation of Marist fraternities.
In each topic the connection was made between the lay Marist vocation and mission. These meetings are useful in demonstrating the sense of unity and family spirit, as well as the growth of the movement which already has 323 members in the Province.

For-Mar, on the other hand, is a meeting for Marist formation which lasts for 16 days and is dedicated to educators, youth animators and members of the fraternities. This was the fifth meeting we have organized. The 58 participants came from the Marist works of Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico. This fifth meeting was carried out in Guatemala from the 14th - 29th November 2007. The formation dynamic includes topics of personalization, analysis of the present situation, Marist spirituality, the discovery and deepening of Champagnat and his Marist charism, education and mission. Each day includes moments of formation, times of personal reflection, encounter groups, spaces and schedules for recreation and opportunities to experience prayer. The evaluation was very positive both at a personal level and with regard to the works.
