A new way of embodyingChampagnat's mission



CAIF "a small seed" is a new Project belonging to the Marists of Montevideo

26/07/2019: Uruguay

On July 22nd, the Marist community of Montevideo, Uruguay, opened the doors of the CAIF Centre "Pequeña Semilla", an establishment that will look after 108 children under the age of 3, in the area of the San José house, next to the Marist Home.

The Marists, who have taken over the management of the CAIF Children's Centre, collected the keys on 10 July from the Instituto Nacional del Niño y el Adolescente Uruguayo (INAU).

CAIF, as a public project, guarantees the protection and promotion of the rights of children from gestation to the age of three.

We celebrate with joy the opening of this centre, which comes to give the Marist community a new way of incarnating the mission bequeathed to us by Father Champagnat, attentive to the call of the last Chapter of the Province of Cruz del Sur:

"We feel called to be and to promote communities committed to their vitality......that accompany the vital educational processes of children, adolescents and young people, especially those who are excluded in different ways... who live open to diversity as richness and opportunity".

This presence in Marist Uruguay will nourish the bonds with the community next to the Marist Home.

We place in the hand of Mary, Our Good Mother, the life of all the girls, boys, their families and educators who will frequent this Centre.
