Marist women from different parts of the world will enlighten us on how to integrate the Marist call to be homes of light with current trends in education, understanding these as responses to the needs of humanity. What trends exist today in their contexts? How do they adapt? How can our Marist values inspire and enrich these trends or even create new trends? Schools, as homes of light, radiating and inspiring, what possibilities do they want to seize? How prophetic do they want to be in today’s world? How transformative?
