Marist Retreat in Kiribati

Recent events in the Marist Life in Kiribati include the first Ecological Retreat, an initiative very much in accord with Chapter calls of the District of Pacific. Participating in it were 18 people coming from the Stewardship team, the Brothers and invited teachers from the St Louis High School and three Champagnat Marist Pre-schools.

Br. Barry led off the first evening with a presentation integrating the powerful calls of Pope Francis in “Laudato Si” into the urgent Cry of our Mother Earth and the Cry of the poor who suffer so much from climate change realities.

Next day, the participants were blessed with presentations by two local women who are both personally and professionally fully engaged in Kiribati climate change realities. It was a powerful wake up call for all involved on the participants’ need to become more actively involved climate change action and in integrating this message into Marist educational priorities.
