Assembly of Province of Nigeria on the 21st General Chapter

03/03/2010: Nigeria

After living the rich and grace-filled moments of the 21st General Chapter, the Provincial knowing the necessity of the fundamental calls of chapter decided to call a Provincial Assembly in order to sensitize Brothers on the need to respond promptly to the radical call to conversion of heart and mind.

In the course of the Assembly, the Brothers reflected, prayed and resolved to embrace the call to CONVERSION as related to our consecration and ways of being MARIST RELIGIOUS, which entails:
1) Intensifying our prayer life, personally and communally.
2) Improve human relationship among Brothers and lay Marists.
3) Adopting gospel attitudes in the use material goods.
4) Being ready to go on mission within and outside Nigeria.
5) Making the “Child” once more the centre of our apostolate.
6) Emphasize the true identity of a lay Marist, namely those who live the spirituality and charism of St. Marcellin Champagnat.

EXPERIENCE: The participants of the Assembly went home inflamed by the calls of the 21st General chapter and resolved further to keep the fire lit by the Chapter burning for the next eight years!

The participants further resolved to adopt the personal requirements of the call, namely to make a personal change of heart in living our consecration, mission and relationship with the Lay Marists.

Finally, unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain (PS. 127).
