Need to dream together



Cruz del Sur Province now includes Paraguay District

15/10/2016: Argentina

After Paraguay ceased to canonically exist as a district, the Marists of Paraguay joined Argentina and Uruguay to form part of the Cruz del Sur province on Aug. 30.

On Oct. 1, the Marists gathered to celebrate this historical event in Coronel Oviedo, Paraguay. Under the theme ‘Welcome at our home,’ in the Guarani language, the Guarani Brothers received a delegation of 24 people that travelled there to enjoy the space. 

The contingent counted with Uruguayans and Argentinians, including directors, brothers, references of areas of provincial animation and members of fraternities.

Participants shared a day of working and reflecting, although in reality the reason they were summed was for “the encounter and the need to dream together,” this new beginning of the Marist Province. The event stressed the fact that each one can dream of his own realities, necessities, paths and that each country can walk towards a new dawn and a new beginning. Participants enjoyed this and prayed a lot for it during the encounter. 

The regional team of Paraguay, within the governance structure and the organisation of the Cruz del Sur province, did a presentation. The Paraguayans received visitors with their music, interpreted by students and former students as well as folklore groups of the area; their typical dances with colourful costumes, joyful adorned each corner of the living room where the day had been shared.
