Building the future of Marist Europe



Meeting of the European Council of the Mission in Dublin

03/10/2018: Ireland

The European Council of Mission held its first meeting for the year 2018-2019 in Dublin, Ireland, on Sept. 13 and 14.
The first day was dedicated to our mission to “build the future of Marist Europe”.

Keeping in mind the strategic lines described in the Assemblies of the Councils of the Mission, we worked on the objectives by creating two teams that will work in the field of the mission:

  • The European Solidarity Team, which aims to define the framework of solidarity for Europe, in collaboration with the other Marist structures of solidarity, the rights of children, the protection of minors.
  • The European Pastoral Team whose main objective is to address the ministry issue in our region.

The Council also worked on the organisation of the 3rd European Assembly of the Councils of the Mission to be held on Jan. 14 and 15, 2019 at the Monastery Les Avellanes in Lerida.

It will be a moment of reflection and exchanging ideas as the region of Europe on the structures of Marist Europe and on a European formation plan, sharing the good practices that are developed in the educational works across Marist Europe.

The second day was an opportunity for members of the European Council of the Mission to meet the Marist reality in Dublin by visiting Moyle Park College. The students responsible for the project ‘Marist Student Leadership Gathering’ presented the objectives of the project in detail, after organizing the welcoming and the visit of their school. The meeting with the educational community of the school marked a true moment of presence, coexistence, sharing.

Before concluding this meeting, a quick visit to the historical sites of Dublin was an opportunity for us to learn about the long history of Ireland and at the same time to thank the Council of the Mission of the Province of West-Central Europe for the welcome and organization of these two fruitful days, full of affection.
