The second round of the European training in mentoring for Vocational Discernment held its first session at the General House from 13 to 18 July. Brothers and lay Marists from Lebanon, Greece, Ireland, France, Italy and Spain took part in this formation meeting. Brothers Ernesto Sanchez, Superior General, and Ken McDonald, General Councillor, spent some time with the group.

In the training – led by the European team for youth and vocations ministry – participants studied the topic of mentoring and key aspects of discernment from the perspective of Marist Christian charism. Along the way, they had the chance to exchange ideas and experiences, get to know one another’s context and meet at a more personal level as members of the one Marist Family.

Following the evaluation of the first round of the training conducted in 2017 and 2018, the European team for youth and vocations ministry felt it was important to conduct a second round of training, with the first session this year and the second to happen in 2020.

The team leading the training has arranged visits across the European region to better understand the different contexts and existing ministries and to discuss hopes and needs with the laypeople and brothers involved. These training courses feature in the overall program of vocations ministry adopted by the Marist Conference of Europe.
