General assembly of the Champagnat Movement of the Marist Family

02/11/2018: France

The General Assembly of the MCFM of the fraternities in France took place on October 13 and 14 in Notre Dame de l'Hermitage. There were present 40 people of whom 16 were Brothers, among them Brother-Pere Ferre, Provincial of the Province of the Hermitage. We were able to benefit from his recollectionsof the General Chapter.

Our meeting was based on 5 important issues:

  • "To hear for ourselves the news of all the fraternities and to establish greater ties among us; all the fraternities of France were present (except that of Beaucamps)
  • "Together, to find enrichment through our differences, to share, to pray, to celebrate and to reinforce in ourselves the charism of Marcellin.
  • "To take ownership of the calls of the XXII General Chapter in a deep and meaningful way. A big thank you to our Brother Pere Ferre.
  • "To discover the new project of life of the MCFM, with a beautiful intervention by Marta Portas.
  • "And thanks to our Brother André Déculty, we could even understand the dynamics of the forum…

The General Assembly re-invigorates us, gives back to us the sense of adherence in the MCFM and reinforces in each of us the spirit of family so dear to our founder.

The next A.G. which will take place in 2 years time will be a very joyful one because we will be celebrating 35 years of the MCFM.

The following year the regional assemblies will take place deal with all the Marist experiences in France.
