This year’s National Brothers Symposium was held on March 25, 2017 at the University of Notre Dame. Over 225 individuals attended and interacted with speakers, facilitators, panel members, breakout session leaders, and scribes who represented over 750 years as vowed religious in over 15 different communities/institutes. It was a very special day for all who participated. The commitment of so many religious brothers was inspiring to all in attendance!
From our Marist Brothers Province, Br. Patrick McNamara, Br. Al Rivera, Br. John Kachinsky, Br. Brian Poulin, Br. Rene Roy, Br. Brice Bryczynski, Br. John Klein, Br. Gerry Brown, Br. Chris Shannon, and Br. Sam Amos attended.
