The Secretariat of Brothers Today has prepared a Prayer for Celebrating the Commencement of the Year of Marist Vocations to give Marist communities, and groups a resource for opening the YMV on May 20, 2022. The idea is to have a uniform celebration throughout the Institute, while at the same time respecting the unique context of each country or administrative unit.

The prayer celebration consists of several short readings around the theme of vocation that offer points for reflection and sharing. The potted plant will be used as the principal symbol of Marist life, for which Marists of Champagnat are invited to care and to generate. It concludes with the Prayer for the YMV and a petition to the Good Mother for her protection.

The prayer celebration is now available on our site. It also comes with the guideline to facilitate the animation.

Also on May 20, the secretariat will host the online Institute-wide Commencement Program. More information is available on the website as well.

You can find in this link all information about the Year of Marist Vocations.
