The Cross of Missionaries : a call to each one

A symbol. The Cross of Missionaries reminds us of the groups of Brothers that Jean-Marie de la Mennais used to send to different countries. A replica of this Cross is going to move from one country to another where the Brothers and
the Laity are at work.

Its itinerary started on the 26th November 2010 at Ploërmel and should end during the General Chapter that is scheduled to take place in March 2012. The passing of the Cross in countries, schools, communities, centres, and groups is an occasion of meetings and celebrations.

The Cross of Missionaries is accompanied with a notebook in which are written
the massages about the way the Mennaisian charism will be lived in the future
in the different sectors of the Mennaisian Family. The events concerning the movement of the Cross are to be found on the Site www.lamennais.org
