The “Pathways” renewal group advances in its formation in Manziana

The 19 brothers from the “Pathways” renewal group who are following the ongoing formation courses in the Marist International Formation Centre of Manziana, are now into the second half of the program.

The formation began in March 2020 for Brothers between 45 and 60 years of age, from the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Last week, Sr. Mercedes Casas, from the Dicastery for Consecrated Life, has been talking about the calls to religious emanating from the writings of Pope Francis. With many references also to our own Institute documents, her presentations are proving inspiring and challenging.

Previous presenters have focussed on a variety of topics around personal growth and integrated living, contemplative prayer. Input on nonviolent communication and interculturality have also been relevant to and appreciated by the participants who come from fourteen different countries: Brazil, Peru, Venezuela, Guatemala, Mexico, DR Congo, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, South Korea, Spain and Australia. This week, the group begins its pilgrimage to the Hermitage in France. It promises to be a very special two weeks since, for most of the group, it will be their first experience of the Marist places, their first chance to walk the pathways of Marcellin and the early Brothers.
