Getting ourselves ready for the future

 

Annual General Assembly of the Association of Lay Marists

27/05/2019: Canada

The 6th General Assembly of the Association of Lay Marists (AMDL) of Canada was held on 13th April, with the logo, “Getting ourselves ready for the future”.  Around 50 people, brother and lay Marists, participated in the meeting which took place in the Provincial House.

The Assembly presided over by Mr Jocelyn Boisvert, the treasurer of AMDL, began with a moment of prayer.

During the meeting, participants examined topics of concern to AMDL, dealt with matters related to the Province Animation Commission (CAP), discussed completed projects and shared on work and volunteering experiences. Such was the case of Mrs. Claude Boucher who spoke of her time as a volunteer in Vietnam with her daughter, Eugenia Gamache.

The Assembly also took note of preparations for the Province Assembly to take place in November.  Its aim is to discern the future of the presence of the Marist charism in Canada.

Also, they reviewed the undertakings and roles carried out in the past year, such as the Professional Development of the leadership team of Camp Marist led by the CAP, and activities between the CAP and young people involved in the Bouffée d’oxygène (BO2) Project of the community centre SAJO (Youth Ministry Service of Outaouis).

The new members of the Leadership Council of AMDL were elected: Kayla Bertrand, Kathy Fortin, Jessica Bonneau (AMDL secretary), Jacques Boudrias (finance manager), Jocelyn Boisvert, Patricia Deslauriers (Vice-President), Jonathan Bock, François Giard (President), Jocelyn Magny, François Bélanger (delegate of Vallée Jeunesse), and Alain Barrette as the new coordinator of CAP.
