Vocation and Mission of Marist Laity


Marist Laity and the Aparecida document

24/01/2008: El Salvador

The Sixth Provincial Meeting of the MCHFM Marist Fraternities took place in San Salvador, El Salvador, from November 9 to 11, 2007. At the meeting were 165 people: laity male and female, plus Brothers. All belong to Marist Fraternities located in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico or El Salvador.

The meeting focused on three topics: (1) the invitations made to laity and found in the Aparecida document issued by the Latin American Episcopal Conference, (2) the present and future of Marist laity after Mendes, and (3) the formation of Marist Fraternities.

In each of the three topics, connection is evident between the Marist lay vocation and mission.

Meetings such as the present always make manifest a sense of unity and a spirit of family; so too does the growth of the Movement which now counts 323 members in the Province.
