“Caring for life” is the theme of the Marist Vocations Week 2022

In line with the Year of Marist Vocations and with the Vocation Month in Brazil, which is celebrated every year in August, the brothers and lay people of the 3 Marist Provinces of the country launched a Marist Vocations Week 2022. This year the theme will be: “Marists of Champagnat: Committed to Caring for Life” and the motto of the week is: “Let’s dare to care for life!” The Vocation Week is inspired by the words of the Gospel: “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (Jn 10:10).

The Vocations Week promoted by the Marists of Brazil is a good time to strengthen a Culture of Vocations among the brothers, lay people, collaborators, Marist ministries and communities. The proposal is that each Marist ministry carries out some activities during a week, which can begin or end on the third Sunday of the month, a date within the month of vocations, traditionally dedicated to the vocation of Consecrated Life.

The week aims to unite efforts, foster integration and synergy between the three provinces of Brazil around the theme of vocations.

These are the specific objectives of Vocation Week 2022:
  • Raise awareness in Marist ministries and communities about building a culture of vocations;
  • To give visibility to the vocation and presence of brothers and lay Marists among young people, in order to encourage them as they pursue their life project;
  • Promote the vocation of the religious brother, encouraging young people to participate in Marist vocational groups;
  • Encourage brothers, those in formation, and lay Marists, to engage in vocational awakening and accompaniment as an expression of their own vocation;
  • To mobilise Marist ministries for reflection on vocations, strengthening the interface between classroom and pastoral work.

Vocations Week, live on
