Formation Community 2020, Pyin Oo Lwin, Myanmar

LEAD Story 326

The Maymyo Brothers’ Community takes off the ‘Come and See’ programme each year that lasts eight months, from January to August. It is part of the initial vocation promotion programme where the Brothers invite young men who have passed the High School Grade in the Local Educational System. This live-in programme takes in 10-15 boys every year to live with the Brothers and study the life and work of the Brothers. The Brothers help them in the betterment of their lives by forming them to become mature Christians.

They have lessons in English, Religion, Human Development and the use of Computer. The students have the chance to continue their further studies and take the UDE Exams. While living with the Brothers and taking part in the parish activities, they will come to know more about the Christian way of life. That will make them think about the Brothers’ vocation and join the Aspirancy in the Formation House of the Brothers. They live in the house of the Brothers with food and lodging free of charge.

The Brothers responsible for the ‘Come and See” programme 2020 are Brothers Lucas Thein, Lucas AhDo, Philip Thein, and Hilary Htun Kyi. The number of candidates is 13. At the end of the programme, the willing or suggested students will apply for the Aspirancy Programme.

During the course of the programme the community in Pyin Oo Lwin had some distinguished guests such as the major superiors from Lasallian East Asia District (LEAD), the Brother Visitor, Formators, Sector Head or Coordinator, and volunteer teachers from the Philippines.

The community is grateful for the interest and support of the District regarding the promotion of the Lasallian Vocations.

Live Jesus In Our Hearts. Forever!
