“Between the 31st August and the 2nd September, the first Inter-congregational Meeting of Brothers Superiors of Community took place in the house of the Marist Brothers of Luján, Buenos Aires. More than 50 Brothers from Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil from the Congregations of the Marist Brothers (22), Lasalle (12), Menesians (4), Sacred Hearts (3) and the Holy Family (9) participated. It was animated by Brother Alvaro Rodríguez, former Superior General of the Brothers of Lasalle, who guided the reflection on the document “Identity and mission of the religious Brother in the Church”.
Both the presentations and the work in small groups and the celebrations gave him the adequate framework to live a true fraternal experience in the diversity of charisms. Many Brothers had done the intercongregational novitiate in Cordoba. The meeting ended with the Eucharistic celebration and a good Creole barbecue for fraternization.
