Marist Youth, beacons of hope



70 young people from Marist Centres on the move

03/10/2019: Paraguay

Following the motto "We are Beacons of Hope", 70 young people from all the Marist Centres of Paraguay, Province of Cruz del Sur, symbolically stopped their march between September 14 and 15 and camped in the Marist House of Ytú, which offered them a fruitful period of life and space to encounter their vocation and mission.

In an atmosphere of celebration, of authentic joy, the young men and women celebrated three years of World Youth in Paraguay together with their animators and they were given the opportunity to recall  everything that they had experienced during their journey, evaluating what had  been achieved and what they had learned.

On this occasion the camp had a social perspective. The young men and women were invited to disconnect from everything in order to go to seek the Light that shines in them and, from that "place", throughout the two days they worked on public policies to develop a Solidarity Project that will give Hope to those who need it most.

As a result of prayer, reflection and exchange, a Volunteer Programme was planned for the month of November in the town of Horqueta. An action that will undoubtedly demonstrate their vitality and allow them to experience in a unique way the value of fraternity.
