The Bicentenary Celebration in Marist Africa

11/01/2017: Kenya - Photo gallery

In the afternoon of Jan. 1, Brothers Ernesto Sánchez and Antonio Ramalho, general councillors, coordinated a time of reflection on the Institute and on the Marist vocation as an introduction to the day of the bicentenary. 

It culminated with a prayer vigil in the MIC's big chapel, where they all offered their commitment to the new beginning, and lit a candle around a large luminous 200, also made of candles, and at the feet of a statue of the Good Mother .

On the morning of Jan. 2, a solemn Eucharistic concelebration, presided over by Nairobi’s auxiliary bishop, David Kamau, brought together the 72 Brothers of the MIC, the two general councillors, the five provincials and the superior of the district of Africa, other Brothers of several African countries and a large group of religious and friends of the house.

The chapel had several Marist motifs, some of them especially related to the bicentenary, and the three attitudes proposed by Brother Emili were also recalled: gratitude, forgiveness and commitment.

Marist and African music, accompanied at times by dances and palms, gave a lot of life to the liturgy and also accompanied the fraternal lunch.
