San Pío V, José Benito Cotolengo y Nuestra Señora de África
These pages wants to collect the lay process lived in the Institute through the proposals arising from the General Chapters and of the major international meetings, from 1985. Wants to be grateful memory to the Spirit of the Lord that has been guiding this process through the years. We have grown progressively in the conscience of perceive the Marist charism as a gift of God for brothers and lay people.
This story of communion that comes here remembered is driving us, both brothers and lay people, to new implications, which are to make possible a "new beginning" with new paradigms for the lay vocation, the common processes of formation of Brothers and lay people, the new way of being a brother, the possible forms of lay association, the experiences of communion, a new time for the Marist charism. The General Chapter of 2017 is a beautiful opportunity to consolidate and projecting these new paradigms.
