Marists of Champagnat Update - February 19, 2021
The Lay Council continues to meet bi-weekly, working on formation resources, the website, and keeping up with membership.
38 members of the first cohort of the formation process have completed the 2nd Webinar. “He Gave Us the Name of Mary” was presented by Central Catholic President Chris Sullivan. Chris gave us much to think about in regard to our relationship with Mary. How are we inspired by her qualities? How can we live out her simplicity, humility, and courage?
The rest of the members of the cohort will attend the session next Thursday, February 25th. Each session is also recorded for reviewing or for those who couldn’t attend in person.
Cohort participants are particularly enjoying the small group conversations that take place. Getting to know folks from around the country and sharing the faith journey is a most important part of the process.
Looking ahead, the 3rd Webinar will be on the Five Pillars. Lay Marists Larry Tucker (Chicago), Madeline Picou (Louisiana), Eyda Alagret (Miami), Tony Cantu (Brownsville), and Joe Hallak (New Jersey) will each present on one of the pillars. The dates for Webinar 3 are March 3rd and 11th.
Rounding out the slate of presenters will be Br. Patrick McNamara speaking on the global implications of being a Marist of Champagnat. and Alice Miesnik speaking on Mission: Love in Action.
