Marist Calendar - September

Local phase: from April 2013 to April 2014


II Marist International Mission Assembly

1 - Definition

MaristThis phase includes the study and analysis of the worksheets at the personal and community levels. It will be done in small groups of brothers, laity, young people, and persons who collaborate in the Marist works, belong to Marist communities and movements (such as Champagnat Movement, Marist Youth, Solidarity Groups, etc.) or participate in other Marist initiatives.

2 - Horizons along the road

  • Presenting the proposal of the II Marist International Mission Assembly.
  • Raising awareness of the international dimension of the Marist Institute.
  • Eliciting a fraternal dialogue about Marist life and mission among all the participants.
  • Selecting the representatives from the Province/District to the Assembly.
  • Living a meaningful solidarity experience with poor children and young people.

3 - Evaluation, report, and celebration of the local phase

To close this first phase of the process, each local group can meet to evaluate the experience, arrive at conclusions, prepare a report addressed to the general coordinator in the Administrative Unit, and conclude with a festive celebration.
The report speaks about the path each group has traveled together, the gratitude for the life and history we have inherited, the new shoots of Marist life we can see emerging in recent times, and the paths we must explore to reach the New Land dreamed by the XXI General Chapter.
The report can take the form of a letter, no more than a page in length, or an artistic rendering of our conclusions (video, painting, music, poster, etc.), a group “creed” or any expression the group or the Commission finds suitable.
