Marist Brazil Youth Ministry celebrates 15 years and launches national guidelines

In 2020, Brazil will celebrate 15 years of the history of Marist Youth Ministry (MYM). The date is a reason for pride and celebration.

Marist Youth Ministry promotes the formation of adolescents and young people with ethical, just and supportive values, inspired by a Christian spirituality, so that they can exercise their leadership and transform society. This process is developed through community experience, the cultivation of spirituality, the strengthening of autonomy and the deepening of the Marist charism.

In celebrating the journey of the MYM in Brazil, we recognise the presence of diversity, which is experienced through the reality present in each of the three Provinces of the country and the different social contexts. And considering this plurality, UMBRASIL, together with the three Provinces, prepared the National Guidelines for Marist Youth Ministry.

During the reflections carried out with the Work Group, the team understood that it was important to produce a document directed as much to the adolescents as to the young people of the MYM, and their accompaniers (animators, articulators, advisers, co-ordinators and ministers). For this reason, the use of an accessible, simple and communicative language was chosen, which takes into account the realities of young people.

To promote its dissemination, an extensive and formative programme was designed to make young people connected through social networks.

For the MYM the time has come to focus on the Guidelines, to recall the roads travelled and to outline new routes, so that more and more adolescents and young people can have their hearts transformed and touched by the love of the Gospel of Christ and the charism left by Saint Marcellin.
