Distribution and study of the document Gathered Around the Same Table

04/03/2010: General House

The Bureau of the Laity, with responsibility for helping the distribution and study of the new document: Gathered Around the Same Table. The Vocation of Champagnat’s Marist Laity, has sent to all the Administrative Units of the Institute some guides for the Brothers and Lay people responsible for its distribution, as well as two aids for studying it.

FMSFirst of all, it has edited a document in PDF, entitled Features of Lay Marist Life: a collection of testimonies from 92 laymen and women with their accounts of incarnating the Lay Marist life around the same table. Following the same scheme of chapters and sections as the previous document, Features attempts to prove that the Lay Marist vocation is not a printed theory but a life that already exists, and in abundance. The various testimonies coming from very different cultural sensibilities show the richness of Lay Marist diversity and of its strong unity in the charism of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, at the same time as they help to give depth to the different concepts of Around the same table from the practice of daily life. The Extended Bureau of the Laity with the efficacious help of our webmaster Luiz da Rosa is the author of this aid published in the four official languages of the Institute. Those who wish can download it directly here.

Br. Pau Fornells and Br. Daniel Martín (América Central) have also made a power-point about the main ideas of each chapter of Gathered around the same table. It may serve to present each chapter prior to personal or group study. It can also be downloaded directly from the links at the bottom.

We at the Bureau of Laity would like to receive all material you are producing for a better distribution and understanding of the document. Beyond the various languages and sensibilities, they will surely be of great benefit for the other provinces. We wish you all encouragement in this work of promotion and formation of the Lay Marist vocation.
