The Marist Model of Evangelisation document was launched in Chile earlier this year, in response to one of the goals of the provincial strategic project of Santa Maria de los Andes (Chile, Bolivia and Peru) for 2011 – 2017. 

Due to the importance that evangelisation in Marist works has gained in recent years, fruit of the conversion process initiated in the Institute that began in the last general chapters, the provincial council, after discerning, saw a need to have a model “according to the provincial vision, with a clear Marian style of discipleship and pedagogically adaptable and applicable in all formal and informal educational communities of the Province.”

A model can be defined as a summary of a reality that aims to identify general aspects that it involves and that therefore is able to characterise it globally.

It adjusts to that reality, not to all realities. It is an elaboration that situates itself in time, subject to the circumstances and the processes of lucidity of the protagonists that build it. Therefore, over time is subject to variation, refinement and explicitness.

 

Expectations from this model:

  • That it permeates the consciences and behaviours of all who are involved in the mission of evangelizing through education. That this model be an inspiration and guide for each educator (No. 124).
  • That it increases the number and quality of evangelizers in our works, believers with a lifestyle that is rooted in the person of Jesus Christ, in the style of Mary. (No. 121, 123)

 

A commission has been formed in Chile, led by Brother Mariano Varona and Ernesto Reyes, the provincial’s representative for the Mission in the country. Each school has appointed a local team that will animate future encounters.

The model refers to evangelisation as such, centred on the proclamation of the good news of Jesus and the invitation to be his missionary disciples.

Regarding education and other forms of Mission, there are four keys in this model that will lead us to announce the Gospel to our children and young people: the pedagogy of the Gospel; the Marist charism; a new way of dialoguing with culture; evangelising through education. 

The great task with the Marist Model of Evangelisation comes now: what really matters is that it permeates the conscience and behaviour of those who, in one way or another, are involved in the mission of evangelising through education and that it transforms the educational task into a reference, an inspiration and a guide.
