Portuguese Marists at Fatima

12/05/2004: Portugal

About 2000 people from various Marist schools and organizations throughout Portugal assembled in Fatima on May 1st, gathered around the banner: With Mary, we journey in Peace. A few hundred students arrived a day earlier to take part in several activities.
It was a powerful and festive gathering, centered on the Eucharist and artistic performances presented by our Marist schools.

The presence of Brother Primitivo Mendoza, the new Provincial of our Compostela Marist Province, strengthened the bonds of communion, broadening the horizons of this new Province that takes in the former administrative units of Portugal, Castile, and León. Drawing on the symbolism of the name Compostela, Brother Primitivo invited everyone present to make the characteristics of pilgrims their own: showing universality, a welcoming attitude, an attitude of seeking and of witnessing to the Light.
