From 6 to 9 May, at the Marcellin Champagnat Marist Centre of Curitiba – PR, there took place the Brasil Region Meeting in preparation for the XXI General Chapter, which will commence on 8 September and whose slogan is: « New hearts for a new world ».

The regional meeting is a space for synthesis and discernment of the progress made by the Administrative Units, a contribution to the brother capitulants, in the face of the challenges laid down by the XXI General Chapter. Its objectives are: to move forward in taking note of and identifying the significant problems and priorities, at the levels of the Region and the Institute ; to discern with regard to the fundamental call for the Marist Institute ; to help one another create a climate promoting the attitudes of conversion of heart, and to become familiar with the proposals about dynamics of work for the XXI General Chapter.

The Meeting was animated by Brs. João Carlos do Prado and Carlos Vélez, the two members of the Chapter’s Preparatory Commission. Br. Mariano Varona, of the Province « Santa María de los Andes », played a special role as « assessor ».

About 30 representatives of the Marist Provinces of Brasil and of the district of Amazonia took part in the Regional Meeting ; among them : brother capitulants, facilitators, invited brothers, lay people and young people.
