1st Marist International Mission Assembly

The General Council’s Mission and Laity Commissions sent to the Provinces a short time ago material to start the preparation for the “1st Marist International Mission Assembly”. We have learnt that the Institute’s thirty-two Administrative Units have started the local phase in which 5,000 brothers and laypeople are participating.

The brothers and laypeople of the General House, who have freely chosen to participate in this process, held their first preparatory meeting on the 3rd March to become aware of the material and to set the calendar for the meetings. Six meetings are planned: one each month except in July and in August. The subjects to be treated have also been chosen in accord with the method proposed by the Commission.

For a good number of the laypeople present at this preparatory meeting, it was an agreeable surprise to discover the extent of the Marist mission throughout the world. They felt part of the impressive institutional work in favour of children and young people, especially those most in need.

The International Assembly constitutes a new stage in the life of the Marist Institute, which offers the brothers and laypeople the opportunity to reflect together, on equal terms, concerning the mission of the Institute at the present time and for the future, as well as on each one’s identity.
