IMYM | 17-21 July 2013

Everything is ready for the III International Marist Youth Meeting (IMYM), which will begin on 17 July in Rio de Janeiro, and end on the 21st. Organised by the Marist Union of Brasil and the Secretariat of Mission, the meeting , like those in Sydney (2008) and Madrid (2011), will host representatives from the various Administrative Units of the Marist Institute, in the « Colégio São José ».

25 Provinces and Districts will be represented, with 187 young people registered from 40 countries of the 5 continents. 45 volunteers from Brasil will help with the organisation and development of the meeting, and 12 persons from the General Government, Provincials and other guests will also take part. The 17 members of the Organizing Commission will also be present. The total number of participants will be 261.

On 22 July, there will be a common meeting of the youth of the four Marist branches :  Marist Brothers, Marist Fathers, Marist Sisters and Marist Missionary Sisters. The four Marist Superior Generals will join the 381 participants.

On 20 July, all the Brothers present at the IMYM will meet Br Emili Turú and the members of the General Council.

After the IMYM will be held the World Youth Day (23-28 July), whose motto is : « Go and make disciples of all the nations ! » (Mt 28 : 19). Some 1,100 Marist youth will take part in the  event.
