Explorando la nueva relación de hermanos y laicos en formación conjunta

11/06/2017: Filipinas

Del 18 al 21 de mayo del 2017, diecinueve participantes, hermanos y laicos, vivieron una experiencia de formación conjunta en Tamontaka, Maguindanao. Se reunieron para reflexionar juntos sobre los dones distintos de su vocación y para discernir expresiones creativas de la misión marista. La actividad formaba parte de la celebración del bicentenario en la Provincia marista de Asia.

Esta formación pretendió enriquecer la vocación de hermano o laico a través del encuentro personal de fe, analizando la nueva relación de hermanos y laicos en comunión y determinando nuevas formas de colaboración en la misión marista.

Los cuatro días de formación desarrollaron un sentido de comunidad entre los hermanos y laicos que habían compartido en profundidad historias de fe y vocación, miedos, esperanzas y dones en la vivencia de sus distintas vocaciones. Al tomar en consideración las tendencias y desafíos de la iglesia en Asia, la experiencia de formación conjunta ofreció a los participantes la oportunidad de analizar las prioridades de misión donde hermanos y laicos pueden trabajar juntos con renovada vitalidad.

La experiencia de formación terminó con el deseo manifestado por los participantes de que este mismo proceso pueda ser aplicado a la formación de muchos hermanos y laicos del Sector y de la Provincia.

Siguen, en inglés, algunos testimonios de los participantes y el mensaje final de la reunión.


“Meaningful experience for me were the reflective prayers, information and sharing of insights and communion between brothers and lay.”

“Each day is full of symbolism which brings more meaning to the topics being discussed.”

“It opened my heart to better understand lay Marists working with the brothers.  I admired their honesty to express their fears, hopes and gifts in relating with me as a brother.”

“This formation serves as a bridge of understanding between brothers and lay Marists…”

 

A Statement from the Participants

We, the Marists of Champagnat, participants of the 2017 Philippine Sector Brothers and Lay Joint Formation Experience, gathered as a family from 18-21 of May 2017 in Tamontaka, D.O.S., Maguindanao, Philippines, to:

  • be enriched in our respective vocations as brothers and lay through personal faith encounters;
  • explore the new relationship of Brothers and Lay in communion; and,
  • determine new ways of collaborating in the Marist mission.

The Joint Formation Experience gave us profound opportunities to:

  • develop a sense of community among brothers and lay;
  • share our faith and vocation stories, fears, hopes and gifts as we live our respective vocations;
  • deepen Champagnat's charism and mission as Marists;
  • identify the trends and challenges as articulated by the Church in Asia; and,
  • explore mission priorities in which we can work together with new vitality as brothers and lay.

To establish greater communion between Marist Brothers and Lay, it is essential that

  • joint formation programs be offered to as many other brothers and lay in the Sector/Province;
  • new missions be carried out where both Marist Brothers and Lay Marists can work together as an expression of doing the mission of Jesus; and,
  • find avenues where both the Brothers and Lay continue to share their stories of faith and vocation.

Grounded on the realities of Asia, the participants of the 2017 Joint Formation Program desire to invite schools/ministries to consider the following: 

  • revisit the curriculum, particularly that of Religious Education, and makeCreation theology/spirituality a part of it; thus; making it responsive to the needs of the young and the society.
  • adopt a school for  Indigenous Peoples and strengthen school programs for them;
  • revisit alternative education programs for those students who are financially disadvantaged;
  • encourage active involvement of both the Brothers and the Lay in the community extension services; and,
  • intensify support to the street children of Marcellin Homes in General Santos City.

The participants of this Join Formation see the following possibilities and hope for the Marist Education Committee to consider: 

  • creation of a Marist Presence Center in every Marist campus to intensify the Brothers and Laity’s presence.
  • coming up with a Unified Green Policy for observance in all Marist Campuses to address environmental concerns;
  • designing a standard Lay Formation Program for all Marist institutions;
  • intensification of information dissemination on the Volunteer Program; and,
  • identification of a two-year project to address relevant issues in the society and the specific needs of the youth as a concrete response to the calls of the Marist Mission Congress.

Furthermore, we recommend and support the following ideas:

  • expansion of the CMMF membership to include non- school personnel;
  • preservation of the Marist identity in our institutions and community:  charism, spirituality, core values; and,
  • study of how to establish a community where Brothers and Lay live together in prayer and  mission.  

With Mary our Good Mother, we lay in her guiding hands each step we take towards a future of deepened appreciation of our distinct vocations, a valued sense of communion, and commitment to greater vitality in doing God’s mission in the way of Champagnat.

Through the Holy Spirit, we look towards the dawning of a new beginning with great hope!
