Assembly of the Champagnat Movement in Santiago

The Champagnat Movement of the Marist family in Chile, Province of Santa María de los Andes, held an assembly on March 14th at the Marist Spirituality Centre in Santiago. During the meeting, the project and the planning prepared by the Animation Team, which will be in office from this year until 2025, were presented.

It was a fraternal meeting where the fraternities felt revitalized and recognized as a family. They also had the opportunity to dialogue, reflect and observe the strengths and weaknesses they have in achieving their objectives as a Movement that practices  the Marist charism with audacity, creativity and efficiency, in communion with other manifestations of the Movement at provincial and regional levels and in harmony with the Church.

The Lay Marists of the Champagnat Movement practise the Christian values by making Jesus Christ known and loved in the lay communities of the different works of the Sector, especially among the families, parents and guardians of the students. And they try to be attentive to the needs of the community (family) and its challenges in these  new times.

In Chile, there are six fraternities of the Champagnat Movement of the Marist Family, where nearly 60 people take part.
