MARIST SECRETARIAT: COLLABORATION FOR MISSION INTERNATIONAL
2015/09/23
ITALY
The Secretariat: Cmi is answers the call of the XXIst General Chapter to "... with Mary, Go in haste to New Lands" through the development of Marist internationality through a Culture of Encounter.
The chapter call was reinforced at the General Conference (2013) Awakening the Dawn.

Cmi  facilitates, networks, manages and offers formation to  Marists on Mission to communities outside of their adminsitrative unit. The secretariat also coordinates the establishment and accompaniment of international initiatives: Marist District of Asia, Fratelli Project, South Sudan Solidarity and Lavalla200>

 
 
  • To establish international and interprovincial communities which will be open to Marist Brothers and Lay Marists and serve in the vanguard of new areas of mission.
  • To strengthen the further development of Mission Ad Gentes in Asia, and open it out to other areas where a need is discerned.
  • To establish a Marist volunteer service in support of our mission, whose members are available to work in our ministries in need or to be mobilized for emergencies.

A further objective has since been formulated: the develop the mindset of all lay and brother Marists to think more internationally and interculturally. 

This fourth dimension has been bought to life with Br Emili’s “Letter to all Marists of Champagnat” with the title: “To the Ends of the Earth” published 2nd January 2013.

Cmi joins four other secretariats of the General Council: Mission; Laity; Brothers (known as ‘Brothers Today’); Solidarity (operating as FMSI)

The action word in the name of the secretariat is collaboration – with other secretariats, provinces, districts, brother and lay Marists throughout the world.
