The members of Champagnat Movement of the Marist Family (CMMF), Philippine Sector gather once more “around the same table.” Around 150 individuals attended the CMMF annual gathering held at Notre Dame of Dadiangas University last Wednesday, May 12, 2010. They are the Marist Brothers and Lay Mission Partners coming from ND Marbel University, ND Dadiangas University, Notre Dame of Cotabato and Notre Dame of Kidapawan College.

…Gathered Around the Same Table.

The theme of the said gathering was, “Gathered Around the Same Table.” Brother Manuel V. De Leon, FMS gave an overview about the recent XXI General Chapter Documents of the Marist Brothers in Rome. He further explained the role of the Marist Laity in the said document.

Two visitors deepened the attendees’ understanding about being Mission Partners of the Brothers in the Ministry; Brother Pau Fornells, FMS, the Head of the Bureau of Marist Laity in Rome and Mr. Tony Clarke, the Director of the Spiritual Formation for the Marist Brothers in Sydney.

After the talk and open forum, a sumptuous meal was prepared which was also followed by the Holy Eucharist at the NDDU Chapel, which indeed, everybody “gathered around the same table.”
