Marist spirituality in the workplace



A Formation opportunity for Personnel of Notre Dame Kidapawan College

02/06/2019: Philippines




The Calls of the 22nd General Chapter specifically suggest for Administrative Units “to develop plan for promoting Marist Life, including appropriate strategies for formation, accompaniment and belonging.” For this, initiatives had been done by the different groups, Marist connected organizations, and schools to foster the nurturing of Marist life of both brothers and lay.

The Integrated Basic Education Department (IBED) of Notre Dame of Kidapawan College convened about Seventy (70) personnel for a Seminar Workshop on Marist Spirituality in the Workplace on May 21, 2019. The objective was to provide formative opportunity for the personnel to know more the essential characteristics of being Marist, deepen understanding of Marist Spirituality that is Marian and Apostolic, and appropriate these upheld Marist values in their own context and workplace.  Ms. Agnes S. Reyes, the East Asia Laity Coordinator facilitated the seminar-workshop input and process.

Mr. Christopher James Ferrer, the IBED school principal, convened the one-day session with the interest of revitalizing Marist life in the academe.  Among the participants, a number of whom are new personnel, 35 expressed their interest to know more about the Champagnat Movement of the Marist Family, a promising indicator, for sowing the seeds and letting grow the gift of being Marist in one’s own workplace.
