Champagnat Movement Assembly

13/11/2012: France

 The General Assembly of the Champagnat Movement took place at Notre Dame de l’Hermitage from 27 to 28 October. This year there was an enlarged Assembly with, two or three members from each Fraternity joining the animators and the accompanying Brothers. Brother Albert André and three members of the Fraternities of Belgium were also present. Isn’t that a concrete way of widening the space of our tent?

Our guest,  Ana Sarrate of the Secretariat of the Laity in Rome, among other things, guided us on the way of our lay Marist vocation in relation to the Champagnat Movement with this question : how to live the «call» in our Movement and how to integrate the riches of the document Gathered around the same table?

As a group we challenged ourselves to keep our Fraternities going as spaces for sharing life. Pep Buetas and Brother Miquel Cubeles of the Provincial Secretariat « Communion of Brothers and Laity » encouraged us to take the route of the forum.

On Saturday evening, we were caught up in a Power- Point  whirlwind which led us to live the rich realities of each fraternity in movement,  music and colour ; and, as in any Assembly, the evening ended in another sharing, one of specialities always abundant and Oh so appreciated!

What is certain is that this meeting encourages each to live fully what the Lord has offered us: a place of life where the charism of Marcellin Champagnat blossoms, a Fraternity where it is good to live.
