Meeting of the European Vocations Team
A meeting of the European Marist Commission for the Pastoral Care of Young People and Vocations was held in Barcelona on the 19th and 20th April. Brother Tony Leon from Rome (Brothers Today Secretariat) was also present for the meeting.
This team reflects what is happening in each of the European Provinces. Its members also looked at some points they wish to develop in the European countries: a structure of interprovincial accompaniment aimed at young adults, a project of welcoming young people in Marist communities in Europe, and the Dare to dream international gathering of Marist youth in Lyon in July, 2016 (http://www.lyon2016daretodream.com/index.php/en/) which will be attended by young people from the four Marist branches – Marist Fathers, Marist Brothers, Marist Sisters and Marist Missionary Sisters.
The evening of our meeting was a time of sharing and encounter with young people from pastoral works in Barcelona who, for the most part, are youth animators themselves.
