Marist Accompaniment Programme in West Central Europe

Following on from the West Central Europe Province Gathering in Guardamar in June 2022, which was based on the theme of accompaniment, Marists in the province were invited to participate in the program launched in 2023. The primary aim of the program is to skill Marists to accompany and nourish other Marists faith journey and ministry work. Participants on the program represent Ireland, Scotland, Germany Belgium and The Netherlands.

The program is led by Darren Burge, Vice Provincial of the Marist Brothers Star of the Sea Province (Oceania) and supported by Aisling Demaison, Director of Marist Mission in West Central Europe. It is currently online sessions until May 2023 and this will prepare participants for the three-day residential program in The Netherlands.

The residential program will deepen the accompaniment skills learned and will focus on the practical application of them in a school or project. Each participant will be accompanied in their work as an accompanier for two years following the program.
