Living Marist fraternity as brothers


11th meeting of Marist Fraternities in Mexico

15/11/2005: Mexico

This meeting took place at the Mexican Episcopacy House near Mexico City. The theme was: Living Marist fraternity as brothers.
Fourteen fraternities took part; they represented twelve cities of Mexico. The themes developed were: sons of the Father, brothers of the Son and fraternity according to the spirit of Marcellin. It finished with a workshop animated by our John Paul II fraternity, sharing the experience of fraternities through the means of a social drama. The theme was developed in a very dynamic way. The meeting took place in the large hall where the bishops of Mexico usually meet. The excellent installations, that were blessed by John Paul II during his visit in 1989, served the aim of our meeting very well.

Brother Michael Flanigan, general co-ordinator of the Marist Family Champagnat Movement, participated in the meeting.
The closing Mass gave us the occasion to celebrate Mission Sunday. Everyone felt sent out to continue the mission to establish the Kingdom of God.
Thanks to the participation of everyone: the organising team, the John Paul II fraternity and all the participating fraternities, the meeting was a success and we hope that it will have benefited everyone.
