Living with greater vitality the charism of St Marcellin



Promoting and nourishing lay Marist life in Asia

30/04/2018: Singapore

Twelve laity, personnel of the Marist Stella High School and Marist Stella Kindergarten gathered on April 13 at Champagnat House in Flower Road, Singapore.

The gathering was meant to share updates of Marist life and to share on the topic about the Marist laity.

For those who came for the first time to join the gathering of brothers and laity, it was for a “come and see” experience, an occasion of being introduced to knowing Marist life and mission.

Elma Rafil, the chair of the Asia Laity Commission, presented the developments of the inclusion of the Marist laity from the General Chapter of 1986 to the most recent General Chapter of 2017, highlighting the different mandates that pertain to the laity being considered in communion with the brothers and are co-responsible in the Marist missions.

The programmes of the Laity Desk of the East Asia Province in relation to the animation of Marist life among the laity was also presented.

Brother Elmer Jandic, member of the brothers’ community, expressed at the end of the gathering his appreciation and hopes for the laity of Singapore to be given more opportunities in the future to know more, so that they can live well and with greater vitality, the charism of Saint Marcellin.
