“Together we make it possible”
The second AIMEL online meeting will be held on Thursday 13 January 2022, at 1:00 a.m. (Rome time). On 10 November 2021, it took place the first of the online sessions planned until 1 April 2022, by means of the Zoom platform, in which we were invited to be daring and creative in responding to the needs of children and young people.
In this digital phase, it was planned to elaborate educational proposals and their rationale to be presented to the 46th General Chapter, using the Google Classroom platform, through videos, readings and exchange of reflections.
The second part of the Assembly will take place in presence, at the Generalate in Rome, from 29 October to 4 November 2022. The aim will be to elaborate on the educational proposals discussed in the first online phase, describing their lines of action.
On November 10th we formally began the III International Assembly for the Lasallian Educational Mission with the theme and motto: “Identity, Vitality, Transformation. Together we make it possible”.
Some months have passed and the delegates have deepened their knowledge of the different realities of the Institute by means of videos, readings and dialogues, thanks to technology.
Now, it is time to dream and to discern the best strategies that will allow us to continue developing our educational mission. From January 24 to March 25, the delegates, organized in working groups, will design educational proposals that will be studied and, if necessary, approved in plenary sessions from March 28 to 31.
The topics to be studied by the assembly members are as follows:
- Animation and Governance
- Formation and accompaniment
- Association and Lasallian Community
- Vocational Culture
- Educational Mission: service to the poor and inclusion
- Educational Mission: evangelization
- Educational Mission: citizenship formation and social commitment
- Identity of educational works
As you know, the complexity of the topics is high and technology has its limitations, so we invite you to encourage all delegates and spiritually join this important event of Association, of fraternal communion.
On the other hand, we also invite you to participate in the closing event of this phase in online mode. This event will be broadcast on our social networks. In due time, we will provide you with detailed information about the transmission.
Thank you for your fraternal communion and for transforming lives, despite the difficulties.
Long live Jesus in our hearts… forever!
International Council for Association and Lasallian Educational Mission (CIAMEL)
