Interprovincial meeting of youth commissions

11/04/2018: Brazil

Representatives of young people from the three provinces of Brazil met from March 22 – 25 in Sao Paulo to encourage dialogue between them so that they can expand their dreams of being better represented within their own province.

Eight representatives from the Brasil Centro-Norte province, five from the Brasil Centro-Sur province (PMBCS) and two from the Brasil Sul-Amazonia province attended. Marists specialised in the ministry of the provincial teams accompanied the young people who contributed to the work.

Friday’s work, based on the “see-judge-act” method, took a look at the progress of each province and participants reflected on the role and objectives of a youth commission.

On Saturday, during the moment of “judging”, the young people received formation on the traditional campaign of the Church of Brazil of the time of Lent, which this year addressed the question of overcoming violence and promoting a culture of peace.

In the afternoon, the young people visited the Arsenal da Esperança, a structure that welcomes 1,500 homeless and immigrants who need a place to stay.

On Palm Sunday, the day of “acting”, participants reflected on their dreams of new horizons for Marist Brazil.

Based on their three-day experience, they thought out ways of building a new dream and of journeying together.

They expressed a desire for more spaces and moments of sharing like this encounter, in which they were able to exchange experiences, in order to strategically establish joint formation, incidents in various social spaces and, perhaps, a national structure of youth representation.
