Marist Fathers, Brothers, Sisters and Laity participate in prayer exercises

03/09/2016: Spain

This summer the branches of the Marist family gathered for the first time to take part in exercises from Aug. 21 – 27 at Los Molinos in the province of Madrid.

Brother Hipólito Pérez, of the Brothers Today Secretariat, animated the encounter, which included one Marist Sister, two lay Marists, seven Marist Brothers and 16 Marist Fathers.

On Aug. 27, they ended the gathering by celebrating the bicentenary of Fourvière with the local community of the Big Brothers of Our Lady of the Rock in Collado Villalba, a municipality of Madrid. There, seven lay people of Madrid and Leon joined the group.

“It’s the first time we have lived this experience as a family,” affirmed Father Ángel Antón. “We have all felt very comfortable and as a family.” 

“The simple, heartfelt, well elaborated, documented and prepared animation on behalf of Br Hipólito was crucial,” he added.

According to Fr Ángel, “the sharing in prayer, in the Eucharist, at the table and in groups was fraternal and with faith.”

“Hopefully, this is the beginning of a collaboration that our founders always wished for.”
