Where are we at this moment in the International Forum process?

Ra├║l Amaya – Director of the Secretariat for the Laity

At this moment we are reaching the final part of stage 2 of the International Forum on the Lay Marist Vocation. This stage has included the study and deepening in each Administrative Unit of the themes proposed by the Forum, at a personal and community level. The dynamics have been developed in small groups formed by Brothers, mixed communities, laypeople, fraternities of the CMMF or other movements.

In some Administrative Units there has already been a Provincial/District Meeting or a similar face-to-face or virtual event in which representatives of the local phase have participated. In other AUs this activity will soon be developed. Each Administrative Unit is organizing this experience according to its reality.

In this step, the three representatives (two lay people and one brother) have been selected to attend the International Forum. Their participation will be in November 2022 (Rome, in person) and November 2024 (virtual).

This Stage 2 ends on June 30, 2022, date in which the Provincial Teams of Lay Animation will send to the Secretariat of the Laity their answers to the questions of each one of the objectives. The answers are the results of the whole process of local and provincial/district reflection that will be worked out by the participants of the International Forum.
