Vocation Promotion in the America Sur Region



Session of theoretical and practical training on vocational culture

09/09/2019: Brazil

The first stage of the Vocational School of the America Sur Region was held from September 2 to 7, in Porto Alegre (Brazil). Around 80 participants attended the gathering dedicated to the vocational animation of the five administrative units that make up the America Sur Region. Also present were other guests from around the Marist world.

The Vocational School is a regional training project, inspired by a program encouraged by the province of Brazil Centro-Norte. The initiative seeks to offer theoretical and practical training to participants and provide a space for debate and deepening based on regional realities and contexts.

The week’s activities focused on four themes: Marist life; Theology and Anthropology; Psychology and Spirituality; Ministry and Experience.

One of those invited was Brother Tony Leon, director of the Brothers Today Secretariat, whose presentation enabled the participants to reflect on vocational culture in the Marist world. Raúl Amaya, director of the Secretariat of the Laity, was also present.

The objective of this initiative is to develop a process whereby, from now until 2022, the Region implements at least three exemplary vocational promotion projects.
