Inter-Provincial Novitiate for the Province of Norandina and for América Central

06/11/2006: Colombia

The Statutes of the new inter-Provincial novitiate, named “La Valla”, were officially signed at Medellin (Colombia) on the 20th October 2006. This novitiate is constituted by the Provinces of Norandina and América Central and is situated at Medellin (Colombia).
It is the end of a three-year journey of discernment, of fraternity and of a shared vision of this formation project that wants to give a response, a face and a life today for the Marist Brother of Latin America.

Currently the novitiate has fifteen novices coming from Colombia, Ecuador, Salvador and Haiti.

In the presence of the Provincial Council of Norandina and the whole novitiate community, Brothers Laurentino Albalá, Provincial of Norandina et Adolfo Cermeño, Provincial of América Central signed the Statute that governs this new inter-Provincial novitiate which will start on the 1st January 2007.

Currently at Medellin (Colombia), the “Brother François Rivat Novitiate” of the Province of Norandina is in operation.

This new inter-Provincial novitiate will bring together two rich traditions of formation at the service of vocations in these Latin American lands.

On one side, in the Province of Norandina and before in the Province of Colombia, the novitiates were always in Colombia: Popayán, Yanaconas, Itaguí and at Medellin, in its current position since 1983.

On the part of the Province of América Central, the novitiates were located in Spain: Pontós, Miranda dEbro and Vente de Baños until 1994. Since this year, they have been located in Salvador (Municipality of the Mexicans) and at Athées, (Salvador), until 2003.
