Sharing Our Call 2 - Fall 2016

 

   

 

The red maple tree by the picnic tables was in full color – an astounding deep red against the blue November sky – and participants at the most recent province gathering of Sharing Our Call II definitely took notice. Many spent their reflection time gazing at and enjoying the splendor of not only the tree but of the entire Marist Brother Center at Esopus property. The small and intimate group explored how to deepen our Marist call, while learning more about ways to truly live the Marist charism.

 

Presentations were done by Life and Mission team members Matt Fallon (Call, Charism, and Transformation), Maureen Hagan (Going Forth: Keeping the Embers Alive), and Br. Al Rivera (Good Christians and Virtuous Citizens). They were joined by Br. Frank Kelly of Marist College (Mary, Model of Marist Living) and provincial council member Br. Don Bisson (Contemplative Practices and Spirituality).

 

Four schools from four states were represented. The talks, prayers, and social times were well received by the participants from Mount St. Michael, Roselle Catholic, Central Catholic and Columbus. The group made use of the newly renovated small dining room for meals and the common room under the clock for gatherings.

 

In addition to the presentations reflection time was also built into the retreat schedule. The group took full advantage of the beautiful fall weather to be outside enjoying the foliage, walking the labyrinth, and visiting the brothers’ cemetery.
