We have valued what we bring to life



Notre-Dame de lHermitage: meeting of brothers and laypeople

30/06/2005: France

The field of our activities is vast as it includes the school environment, chaplaincies, catechesis, youth movements, vocational accompaniment, school support, ex-students and recreational activities. About thirty laypeople and brothers were able to deepen together “the Marist education mission”. All the participants spoke about their apostolic situations in which they are working, the field in which they are trying the sow the seed and in particular where they tend the young plants that are growing… It was a precious time for describing in a few words the different facets of their apostolate. We are committed to valuing what “we bring to life”, what we animate.
By using the document “In the footsteps of Marcellin Champagnat, A Vision for Marist Education Today” we deepened our experiences by putting this guide in parallel with what we are trying to do day after day. Often, it is a question of being “with”, of doing “with”, of forming lay Christians, of being attentive and vigilant witnesses, of allowing people to move ahead, to become autonomous, continuing on their journey of growth.
The convictions of all included: we need faith, prayer and the breath of the Spirit. We take small steps forward but we are certainly moving ahead. It is good for us, as laypeople and brothers together, to restate our common riches, to value our apostolic situations, our ministry successes and that which energises us for the future.
The future? We are going to find ourselves meeting again like this. Thank you to the brothers who led the weekend, who helped us to pray, who encouraged us to sing without forgetting those who had set the table for us!
