Meeting of Marist Directors of Educational Works

The Directors of the Marist Educational Institutions of Venezuela, Province of Norandina, met from May 10 to 13 to reflect about the Global Compact on Education promoted and launched by Pope Francis. The Provincial Superior, Brother Orlando Escobar, was also present and invited the participants to live the calls of the last Provincial Chapter.

During the conference, the challenges of the educational works in Venezuela were discussed.

Marisol Mendoza, a lay Marist, spoke about the mission that the Marist Leaders must assume in order to act efficiently and to be able to give timely responses to the children and young people with whom they work.

The meeting also saw the formal launching of the “Change, Educate and Transform” Project, which seeks to generate a pedagogical proposal in the educational works adapted to the reality of the place, based on the new existing educational paradigms.

At the conclusion of the event, the Marist directors had an experience of retreat and silence. Accompanied by Fr. Nestor Briceño, a former student of Champagnat School in Caracas, the participants lived an experience of closeness to God and his call.

The meeting culminated with the celebration of the Eucharist, where all the directors were sent to share what they had experienced and make it fruitful.
