Second edition of Vidamar III



An invitation to leave your comfort zone

02/02/2018: Brazil

From Jan. 7 – 13, 19 Brothers, laity and collaborators from different mission spaces of the Brasil Sul-Amazonia province met for the second edition of Vidamar III.

The project is one of the main formation programmes of the province and, in that third stage, it provided an opportunity for immersion in the Marist Social Center (Cesmar) and in the Rubem Berta neighborhood community, in Porto Alegre, where the unit is located.

The programme included moments of reflection, sharing and experiential activities at Cesmar. With this perspective, Vidamar III seeks to encourage understanding of the role of everyone in the world, both Marists and citizens.

The proposal also responds to the calls of the Church and the Marist Institute to leave the comfort zone and go to meet the neediest.


About Vidamar

The Marist formation project focuses on the reflection and experience of the charism and takes place in three stages: Vidamar I, which proposes a view towards oneself and others, where acceptance is a fundamental point for personal growth; Vidamar II, intended for the approximation of groups in moments of sharing life, stories, achievements and challenges; and Vidamar III, who proposes the experience of immersion in a Marist missionary space.
