Marist Calendar - September

In recognition of two lives in the service of children



Awarded the distinction of “Divino Maestro”

13/10/2005: Argentina

Each year, the Higher Council of Catholic Education, CONSUDEC, honours teachers and people who are distinguished by their contribution to Catholic education: lay teachers, religious, priests, and people recognised for their life of devotion. Many Marist Brothers have already been honoured. On the 23rd September of this year, Brother Ramón Gregorio and Mr Agustín Pereda, a Marist lay teacher, received the distinction of “Divino Maestro”.
Brother Ramón Gregorio received this award for his work with children and adolescents in the schools of Marcellin Champagnat and Santa María de Belén. For forty-two years, he has fulfilled his tasks with attention, conviction and a great deal of love for the children who are less well off than others.
We give thanks to God that there is still a lot of energy to change things and a lot of love to serve, in this Argentina that needs men and Christians like Agustín Pereda. He was teacher and then director of the primary school of Champagnat College in Buenos Aires for thirty-seven years. Now retired, he remains an example as a teacher and Christian engaged in a task that is not always easy due to the demanding environment in which it is accomplished.
Brother Agustín Martínez, Vice-Provincial, and Brother Eugenio Magdaleno, Director of Champagnat College, have expressed on behalf of us all our gratitude for these two lives given to the service of children and adolescents of Argentina. They did this during a meeting of brothers, teachers and friends in the meeting room of Champagnat College. Each one of these men were given an image of our Good Mother, even though we know that their intention is to continue their work of love close to the preferred ones of Jesus, Mary and Marcellin.
