The annual meeting of Young Brothers took place from the 25th of June to the 2nd of July in the La Salle Conference Centre in Guatemala City. The theme of the assembly was “The Apostolic spirit of the Brother”. As usual, this event gave opportunities for formation, social interaction, reflection and prayer.
The goal of the meeting was to strengthen fraternal links through the personal and community experiences of Young Brothers in the different educational establishments in the District. The focus was on the impact of the administrative guidelines and orientations for the apostolic and community action of the Brothers and the way in which accompaniment is carried out.
Financial and Administrative Management (GAFDI) was given its place, so as to share with the Brothers the tools and procedures employed in the District el Distrito in order to realise the various projects in Communities and educational establishments. Brother Juan Manuel Fletes spoke about the guidelines for the accompaniment of each Brother as an ambassador of the gospel in practice in the everyday fulfilment of his mission.
This day of formation for the Young Brothers was carried out in a positive atmosphere of reflection, prayer and fraternity. We wish them every success in their activities, whether administrative, academic or pastoral. May the spirit which inspired our Holy Founder give them vitality in their work and in their vocation.
