A new beginning: Discipleship, mysticism and mission



Pastoral Assembly of the Marist Province of Brazil Centro-Sul

04/11/2016: Brazil

From Oct. 26 – 28, Brothers and laity of the Brasil Centro-Sul province gathered in the pastoral assembly in Curitiba.

Under the theme “a new beginning: discipleship, mysticism and mission” and under the theme “… And he walked with them (Luke 24:15b),” the encounter gathered over a hundred participants, representatives of different areas of provincial mission.

The assembly’s main objective was to give new impetus and vigor to the provincial pastoral ministry. The process was divided in three phases: a pre-assembly, the pastoral assembly and the post-assembly. The first phase was dedicated to studying the reality by visiting all the units to listen to pastoral agents. From this list came ideas that helped establish the pastoral horizons of regional meetings.

The second phase, the assembly in itself, was a moment of celebration, of studying and of preparation of the ministry guidelines at provincial level.

Brother João Batista, in charge of the provincial ministry, manifested that the “assembly was an occasion to turn one’s gaze back to the evangelizing action of different units, with the goal of revising the processes and advancing in the Marist mission.”
