International Communities for a New Beginning



Lavalla200> Third Preparation Programme

03/05/2018: General House

The next formation programme for Lavalla200> will be held from May 7 – July 7. It will be the third group of Marists from across the world who have made themselves available for these two months with the intention of joining one of the “international communities for a new beginning”.

As in previous years, the first week will take place in Rome and the following seven weeks at San Martino a Monte (in Tuscany). The final week at the Hermitage concludes with their commissioning by Brother Ernesto Sánchez, superior general.

The new group of 17 participants is made up of Marists coming from all corners of the world:

Brother Jorge Gaio, Juliana Fontoura, Diogo Santana and Augusto Santos (Brasil Centro-Sul); and Regina Bisasibetti (Brasil Sur Amazônia); Ricardo Miño and Margarita Pérez (Santa María de los Andes); Br Pierre Joseph Rasolomana (Madagascar), Br Francis Attah (Asia); Br Lazar Hirudayasamy Sebastian and Jiji Dasan (South Asia); Br Anselmo Kim, Dionesio Acosta and Jonnel Sisneros (East Asia); Beth Code (Australia); Rosa Schiaffino (Mediterranea).

This year a De la Salle Brother from Colombia, Br Carlos Caicedo, who is a member of their newly begun community in Tabatinga, will join the programme.

That is, there will be nine Brothers, including one Brother De la Salle, and eight lay people, (two married couples).

This program will introduce people to the original vision of the Lavalla200> communities but with the freshness of the XXII General Chapter which invites us to journey as a global family, a beacon of hope and bridge-builders in this turbulent world, for the sake of children and young people on the margins of life.

Our wish is that through the programme, all these Marists of Champagnat will feel inspired to respond boldly and creatively to today’s emerging needs.
