An invitation to celebrate and build together our Marist life and mission

08/04/2013: General House
Mission Assembly- Nairobi 2014

The XXI General Chapter, within the context of the “new relationship bet­ween brothers and laity, seeking greater vitality together”, invited the Insti­tute as a whole to “organize another Marist International Mission Assembly in the spirit of Mendes”.

This mandate from the Chapter was assumed by the Superior General and his Council, who appointed a Commission to carry out the preparation and im­plementation of the Second Marist International Mission Assembly (II MIMA). This Preparatory Commission is integrated by: Mrs. Alice Miesnik, United States; Mrs. Monica Linares, Cruz del Sur; brother Mark Omede, Nigeria; Mr. Frank Ma­lloy, Australia; Mr. Manuel Gómez Cid, Mediterránea; brother Paul Bhatti, South Asia; brother César Rojas, Brothers Today Secretariat; brother Javier Espinosa, Secretariat of the Laity; and brother João Carlos do Prado, Secretariat for Mis­sion and Coordinator of the Commission.

An international assembly is a special moment in the life of the Institute which offers the opportunity for brothers and laity to share, reflect on, celebra­te, and build together Marist life and mission on equal terms, looking at the pre­sent times and envisioning the future, as we remain faithful to the charism. It is also an opportunity to strengthen our international and intercultural dimension at the service of children and youth. As we know, the first Assembly was held in 2007 in Mendes (Brazil), under the motto of “One Heart, One Mission.”

The XXI General Chapter marked all its work with the sign of innovation, and invited us to “go in haste, with Mary, to a New Land”. New initiatives have emerged and consolidated in many parts of the Institute as a natural consequence. The II Marist International Mission Assembly wants to explore these new initiatives. It challenges us to live a new religious life which may generate a new way of being Brother, in a new relationship of communion between brothers and laity, with a significant evangelizing presence among poor children and young people.
