Invitation to the III Marist Mission Assembly

On the occasion of the III International Marist Mission Assembly, which will be held from April 8 to 14, 2024, in El Escorial (Spain), under the theme: “We are a Global Family”, Brother José Sánchez Bravo, director of the Secretariat of Education and Evangelization, and member of the Preparatory Commission, invited all Marists to participate in the event, which is already underway. (Whatch the video).

“We want to go towards the future, and be able to continue responding to the needs of children and young people,” mentioned Br. José in speaking about the Marist Mission.

Referring to the elements of the logo of this third assembly, Brother José recalled that “, we placed a world behind the Hermitage house, which gives us the idea of Being a Global Family. The image of the Hermitage tells us about the legacy; windows mean looking into the future; the doors mean welcome; and the river Gier that flows represents the water that goes to the whole world”.
