Find here the September edito of Marianne de Boisredon, head of Fondacio France: Happy back to school to all! “Brothers become friends and traveling companions who help us move forward on the path to a brighter life.”

September opens us up to starting over and gaining new momentum! Back to school is a time that invites us for many to organize ourselves in a certain way, and to make choices that will shape our whole year until next summer.

At Fondacio, it is a joy to organize back-to-school days in the regions to re-establish links with people in the network and to invite any new person, who would like to, to come and discover the proposals made by our movement. You can find all the richness of the 2021-2022 program in the new catalog and of course on this site.

This start of the new school year, which opens with still some uncertainties, will require all of us to be anchored and trust. As Christians, we are called to be carriers of life. To do this, we must above all embody the “good news”! “I will believe in God when Christians have the heads of resurrected people”, said the philosopher Nietzsche. At Fondacio, we cultivate simple and authentic joy and precisely seek to offer a positive and joyful face of the Church. Our vocation expresses our desire to be leavens of hope and awakeners of humanity. Fondacio will be present with other movements in 4 cities of the next Mission Congress on the weekend of October 1, 2 and 3, 2021: Strasbourg, Lyon, Toulouse and Rennes!

We will also be attentive to what will emerge from the synod on synodality and the governance of the Church launched by Pope Francis. We can all contribute to a different future for the Church, and in society, by being beings of dialogue.

Once again this year, Fondacio will be close to you to get you on board and accompany you on your way of life. Our community is one and diverse, offering multiple places to recharge with others, to awaken the best in all!

To define your major events for the year, don’t hesitate to take part in one of the “Personal Training Plan” workshops organized in the regions.

I wish you a very good return to school and also a wonderful year, filled with discoveries and progress for yourselves and your loved ones. May this be the occasion for you to take regular times of inner listening to make choices inspired by the Holy Spirit! The Spirit is blowing, let’s follow it!
