Consecration as religious brothers



Retreat and professions in the Province of Brasil Centro-Norte

23/01/2006: Brazil

Given the size of the Province, two retreats were held for the Province of Brasil Centro-Norte. Both were marked by the celebration of Marist profession and renewal of vows ceremonies. Twenty-seven brothers renewed their vows, three brothers pronounced their first vows and three brothers made their final profession.
The perpetual vows of Brothers Guilherme Soares Fontes, Jair Emerson da Silva and Lúcio Gomes Dantas was attended by many of their confrères, family, friends and lay people committed to the Marist mission. The main theme of the retreat, centred on consecration, was a great help in the reflection regarding our identity as religious Brothers in our mission in the Institute and the Church.

At the end of the retreat, as an immediate preparation for the vow ceremonies, a triduum was held during which the professed brothers could speak about their vocation and about their whole vocation process from the beginning until they made their definitive decision. In this way, more than simply sharing personal information, they motivated prayers that were offered to God in thanksgiving for the prophetic gesture of their definitive commitment to the Lord in the Marist Institute.
The brothers of the Province of Brasil Centro-Norte rejoice in the precious vocations the Lord of the harvest has sent them.
