Beginning of a Marist novitiate in Havana

01/10/2007: Cuba

On September 8th, feast of the Nativity of Our Lady and also feast of the Virgin of the Cobre in Cuba, the young crucense Yoandy González started his novitiate in the Marist community of Havana. The whole Marist family of Cuba are grateful to our Lord who continues calling the young people to follow him in Mary’s way like Marcellin. Yes, we are very grateful for ‘this wonderful gift’ given to the Cuban church and in particular to us, Marist Brothers. The private ceremony was simple and very moving as this is the first Cuban novice in 50 years.

As Marcellin prayed to Mary, we too say, ‘This work is yours; you have gathered us, in spite of the contradictions of the world... you have done everything among us, thank you, O Good Mother’.
