We are a group of Marist Provinces that organize and work together to revitalize Marist life and mission, offering shared services in harmony with the Institute through principles, processes and structures that allow us to respond to the challenges of our lived experiences.
That in 2026, we brothers and laypeople as Champagnat Marists of Arco Norte, will be recognized as a cohesive region that shares its spirituality and mission co-responsibly and creatively in line with the journey of the Institute.
The main objective of Arco Norte is to help the Institute to find the best means to respond to the needs, calls of Marist life and mission.
We will focus on 5 major themes that represent the journey of the provinces and of the Institute, and that are the basis for our sharing experiences and best practices in the 6 provinces.
