Formation program for Marist leaders begins

60 brothers and lay Marists, coming from 19 countries of Europe, America and Africa, begun on May 13 the first part of the formation program ” Marist Leaders – Servant, prophetic and qualified leadership”.

The formation, promoted by the General Administration of the Marist Institute with the sponsorship of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS), is carried out in line with the Message of the XXII General Chapter (Colombia – 2017) that asks to assume “a prophetic and servant leadership, which closely accompanies Marist life and mission”. And it suggests that “at all levels of government, structures should be put in place and/or strengthened where all Marists share leadership and responsibility in life and mission”.

Participating in the course are brothers and lay people who are developing strategic leadership in the Administrative Units or are preparing to work in strategic areas of mission development.

The first edition of this program is in Portuguese and Spanish. It will be online until October. Afterwards, the participants will meet in Porto Alegre for the face-to-face session, from October 3 to 15. Here you can see all the program contents.

The course has two main objectives:
  • To foster, through training and accompaniment (even professional), a solidary mentality that privileges co-responsibility, transparency, efficient and effective management and sustainability.
  • To promote a leadership of service that is open and trained to meet the emerging realities of our Institute and the world.
Another program is planned for next year for English and French-speaking audiences.
