Social Media: #LaValla2017


The XXII General Chapter, which has as it's motto “A New La Valla,” invites all Marists into a new beginning.

As Emili Turú emphasized in the Convocatory Letter, the goal of the Chapter Meeting “is to make La Valla relevant today, at the beginning of the 21st century, as a new world is emerging.”

Given this motivation, the council chose to use the hashtag #LaValla2017 accross various social media channels (YouTube, FaceBook and Twitter), and will use this expression to share information related to the activities of the Chapter Assembly.

The whole Marist world is invited to use #LaValla2017 in their posts to spread the message throughout the digital world!
