Marist Calendar - September

You cannot walk in the Founder’s charism without feeling the necessity to go to the children and young people who are the least favoured



Meeting of “Marist Family” Movement Fraternities

From the 9th to the 11th September, the National Meeting of Marist Family Movement Fraternities took place.
Some fifty members of around fifteen Fraternities from Argentina participated in this three-day meeting at the feet of the Virgin of Luján. For more than one hundred years Marcellin’s “Marists” have knelt before this statue to ask a blessing on their mission in these lands.
There are currently twenty-five Fraternities in Argentina who are enjoying the experience of being Marist and living the Founder’s spirituality.
The meeting focussed on the lived experience of being Marist. Each Fraternity shared its community and apostolic experiences in turn and listened to the vocational stories of the brothers accompanying them in this meeting; around fifteen brothers participated during these days.
Many of these Fraternities have felt the need for realising concrete forms of projects for living community through solidarity.
You cannot walk in the Founder’s Charism without feeling the need to go to the children and young people who are the least favoured. Many of these communities, as well as participating in meetings, commit themselves to concrete solidarity activities: looking after the school dining room, mending of clothes, supporting Marist educational centres, attention to and promotion of social centres and health centres… etc.
The majority of these Fraternities are formed by ex-students, families of students and brothers. This is one way of living Marist Life as Marcellin planned it to be.
