Considerations:

  1. Considering that the last General Chapter of the Institute of the Little Brothers of Mary invited reflection on “the diversity of Marist commitments” (Action Plan #2).
  2. Considering that the last General Chapter invited “the representatives of the various continental networks” to initiate “a process of reflection and participation on Marist Mission”, and that this process culminated in the assembly at Mendes.
  3. Taking into account the lived experience of Quebec, that intended to bring brothers and laypeople around the Marist Educational Mission.
  4. Taking into account the will expressed in the latest Forums of living the Marist charism in Quebec.

 

The following steps toward the commitment of Marist laity are put forward:

 

1. Requirements of the Process:

a.    To live in contact with the charism for a period of at least two years.
b.    To be part of a group of Marist life (Marist fraternity, life groups, etc.)
c.     To become actively involved in the Marist mission in a Marist ministry or in other places of involvement.
d.    To have personal accompaniment that allows the integration of Marist values.
e.    To participate in various types of formation that are proposed (retreats, forums, etc.)

 

2. Development of the Commitment:

The person expresses his or her desire to make a commitment as a lay Marist after having fulfilled the requirements of the process. This is done by sending a written request to the MMQ (Marist Movement of Quebec) and to the provincial council.

a.    Each person should take a time of quiet and reflection to make a vocational discernment.
b.    The person should be recommended by his or her companions (members of the Fraternity or others).
c.     The person’s application should be accepted by the powers that be (the Provincial and the president of the MMQ).

 

3. Forms of Commitment:

  1. 1st stage of commitment:
    * The Marist layperson makes a commitment to be faithful to the process described above for a period of three years.
  2. The initial commitment is expressed publicly in the context of a Eucharistic celebration.
  3. Renewal of the commitment:

* The lay Marist can renew the commitment every three years.
* The lay Marist should express the desire to renew the commitment to those in charge in writing.
* At each renewal he or she should repeat points a, b and c of the commitment process.
* The person is invited to make an evaluation of his or her experience and to express the reasons for wishing to renew the commitment.
