The international Marist youth Meeting (IMYM: "Dare to Dream") is coming soon! It will be held from July 17th to 23rd, 2016, in Lyons, France. On this occasion the 4 branches of the Marist Family (the Marist Sisters, the Missionary Sisters of the Society of Mary, the Marist Fathers and the Marist Brothers) have decided to celebrate together this experience.
There are several reasons that bring us together to Lyons: to promote the ongoing development and integration of the young people from the 4 branches of the Marist family; the celebration of the bicentenary of the Promise of Fourvière (July 23rd, 2016); the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Institute of the Marist Brothers (January 2nd, 2017), and the World Youth Day in Krakow, from July 26th to the 31st, 2016.
Many young people expect already to share their joy, solidarity and dreams in different forms and different spaces, to share their experiences as young people within the Marist Family. This process opens us today to new horizons for the Marist Charism and Mission.
