Educators participate in the “Evangelization with Children” Course

More than 200 educators from the three Marist Provinces of Brazil (Brasil Centro-Norte, Brasil Sul-Amazônia and Brazil Centro-Sul) participated on March 8 in the inauguration of the Extension Course “Evangelization with Children”, promoted by the Marist Union of Brazil (UMBRASIL).

The course lasts 17 weeks and is carried out through the MOODLE platform. 210 places have been offered: 70 for each Province.

The course aims to provide theoretical-methodological and practical alignment in evangelizing and children’s pastoral. This is addressed to the Mission Advisors, Pedagogical Coordinators of initial and primary education, Mission Agents and Catechists, in order to guarantee evangelizing education and the identity of the charism in the Marist network of schools in the country.

The first week was one of welcome and setting. In the following 16 weeks, the development of the modules and the interaction on the platform began: participants can watch recorded classes, participate in debates and discussions in the forums, read and carry out evaluation activities, in addition to preparing the work final.

The 4 planned modules deal with the following themes: identity, religious potential of the child, paths and pastoral action with children.

This course responds to the calls launched by the UMBRASIL documents, which ask to establish a dialogue between the pedagogical and pastoral areas, and to make the formation of the protagonists of education fundamental.
