Marist Memories Project: stories of love and life

28/06/2019: Brazil

To preserve a record of the people who have helped to build the history of the Marist Network. This is the central objective of the Marist Memories Project: Stories of Love and Life, which this year sees its third edition.

The initiative has 31 mini-documentaries that portray the story of the lives of Brothers and Lay Marists, and addresses topics such as vocation, mission and the educational legacy, especially in Rio Grande do Sul. The project is a way of keeping alive the history of the institute and also of paying tribute to the people who gave of themselves for this work to continue.

Archivist Graziele Santorum, a member of the project team, explains the historical importance of the videos: "The oral narrative is a complement to the documents we have in the province archives. From their own words, we can learn about the lives of the interviewees, and also be better informed about the origins of our work in the south of the country.

Marist Brother Pedro Pellizzaro, one of the characters in the third edition, also thinks that documentaries are much more than tributes. "They tell the stories of people who are emblematic of the places where they were, whose life journeys have been linked to mission," said the 82-year-old Brother, 61 of them in Marist consecrated life.
