2018-12-19 GENERAL HOUSE

Let God be the first guest of your Heart

We met all together on the 23rd of September 2018: Eight second year novices coming from community experience in four different communities (Byimana, Rwabuye, Mururu and Nyangezi) and thirteen postulants admitted to the novitiate. Two formators were waiting for the novices in the novitiate. 

The novitiate’s community is now composed of 21 novices from six countries: Central Africa Republic (1), DRC (8), Kenya (2), Madagascar (3), Tanzania (1), Rwanda (6) and 2 formators from Madagascar and Rwanda. 

After few days of orientation and initiation, the novices started the process of making the Community Life Plan. This process was concluded by a pilgrimage to Kibeho on 18 October to entrust the year of formation to Mary. 

Then the community continued with the timetable of the novitiate with all its different activities. 

On 24 November 2018, the thirteen first year Novices were received officially in the novitiate. The celebration was simple and truly Marist. The presence of Brother Kalisa, the provincial of Pace and the representative of all Marist communities of Rwanda made the celebration very significant for all.

Sure of the presence and the intercession of Mary and Champagnat in their community, the novices and Brothers commit themselves to really “let God be the first guest of our hearts”.
