Formation of those accompanying the Lay Marist Vocation in the Cruz del Sur Province

More than 50 lay people from Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, accompanied by some Brothers, have been participating since April in the Formation Course “On the Road to Emmaus”, organized in a face-to-face and virtual way by the Marist Vocation Area of the Province of Cruz del Sur.

The program is consequence of the International Formation Course for Leaders and Animators of the Lay Marist Vocation, promoted by the Institute’s Secretariat of Laity. Its objective is to form the laity of the three sectors of the province as vocation animators, in order to promote the vocation and charism of Champagnat in the educational works of the Province.

Throughout these months, the participants have deepened their understanding of the spirituality and community dimension of the Marist charism: love of work, family spirit, service to the most fragile, simplicity of daily life and community prayer. It also focuses on the paradigm of care and provides tools for accompaniment. The participants are currently designing plans to animate and accompany the lay vocation in their works.

During the formation, the educational centers and the brothers’ communities received the lay Marists in their spaces. Now, the formation is in its final stage.
