After the Institute’s 22nd General Chapter, held from Sept. 8 – Oct. 20, 2017 in Rionegro, Colombia, the provincial council of the L’Hermitage province considered it necessary to reflect on its messages and conclusions.

The province organised on March 17, at the Lycée Leonin de Patissia in Athens, a day of reflection, which was attended by the Marist Brothers of Greece, the steering councils of the two local Marist schools and the social centre “Heart without borders”, the principals and deputy directors of each level, as well as the prefects of the classes.

After the initial prayer, the superior provincial, Brother Pere Ferré, and the vicar provincial, Brother Gabriel Villa-Réal presented, through a video, the most significant moments of the General Chapter and then spoke of the five calls that the capitulars sent to the Marist world, explaining the meaning of the icons used and the Gospel verses that each of them expresses:

  • As a global charismatic family, a beacon of hope in this turbulent world.
  • To be the face and hands of your tender mercy.
  • Inspire our creativity to be bridge-builders.
  • To journey with children and young people living on the margins of life.
  • To respond boldly to emerging needs.

Then, the participants shared their experiences in groups and talked about the experience of these calls in their daily lives. At the end of the day, Br Pere thanked the formation teams of the two Marist schools in Greece for organising the work and, all the participants, for their presence and interest in this “new beginning” at the threshold of the third century of the Marist Institute.
