Our school is beautiful at night
Pictures of great beauty had just been takenand distributed by Christopher LIAU, Head of the IT department of the Collège-Lycée La Mennais of Papeete, Tahiti-Polynesia, he is passionate about photos.
Monia Taumaa, a Socio-cultural animator, wanted to share it with the entire Mennaisan Family. I found it very beautiful. This is La Mennais High School at 5:00 at dawn. Many people (students, former students, parents, etc.) found it beautiful and here is a screenshot of it. What I really appreciated was this attachment, this identity that binds us to La Mennais Brothers. This College that had seen and is seeing thousands of young people…”.
Karate club, singing, support for genocide survivors, karate, literacy, Mennaisian youth, media, environment, health, music, literacy, charity, IT: what an abundance within the establishment ENP/TTC Jean de la Mennais de Kirambo, Rwanda, whose Director is Brother Emmanuel RWANDAMURIYE.

Workers for Fraternity
The Brothers of the Divine Providence District met in different places of different Countries: in Culipran, for Chile, in Reyes for Bolivia, in Villa Gobernador Galvez for Argentina and in Maldonado for Uruguay to live their annual retreat last January. Undoubtfully a very special Annual Retreat. Virtual animation. Gathered around the four Countries, the laity found themselves on-line, and the retreat was very attractive and exciting.
The theme focused on the Bicentenary of the birth of the Congregation and on the theme for the District “Born to be Workers for Fraternity”. Bro Josu did a quality animation.
At the end of the retreat, we experienced the renewal of the temporary vows of the Bros Daniel and Walter for two years. Simple, profound and caring celebration.
May God bless us and make us fruitful in brotherhood!

For 16 years, he has worked at the Office of Masses, Candles and Gifts with religious and lay people from different Communities and from various Continents. He also actively participated in the animation of Masses in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception and in the crypt. He would be able to respond on an ad hoc basis to requests made to him. A reception was held at the Pastoral Hall of the shrine in the presence of Archbishop Xavier D’Arrodes, Vice-Rector and collaborators.
