Working for life

From 15 to 17 November, the Marists of Champagnat from Canada will meet to talk about the future of Marist life and mission in the country. The meeting will bring together 110 participants, Brothers and Laity, in Trois-Rivières, Quebec.

Due to the falling number of Brothers, the province of Canada faces a great challenge: to assure that the mission may be able to continue. The challenge is that the lay Marists commit to continuing with the Charism of Champagnat. Therefore, it is in this context and to the service of the continuity of the Marist life, that a Provincial Assembly has been programmed. 

For the last few months,a process was devised at Provincial level, also open to the participation of Arco Norte to dream of a future with hope and trust.

The assembly is the culmination of a process that began last March, with the first meeting of the organizing committee that is made up of representatives of the General Administration, the two Councillors: João Carlos do Prado and Ken McDonald; representatives of the Province of Canada: Brother Gerard  Bachand, Brother Félix Roldán and two lay people, Mrs. Patricia Deslauriers and Mr. Christian Boutin;, the process is also supported by a facilitator, Mrs. Silvia Gollini Daum. And also the Brother Vicar General, Luis Carlos Gutiérrez Blanco, responsible for regionalization.
