Brother Angel Medina appointed Director of courses of spirituality in Spanish

23/02/2010: General House

In its regular meeting on 9 February 2010, the General Council appointed Br. Angel Medina, of the District of Paraguay, as new Director of spirituality courses in the Spanish language, for a first term of three years, beginning in July 2010. These courses of continuing formation for the « second age », also known as the « Escorial Course», are also now held in the house of the Claretian Fathers at Los Negrales.

As was announced on the website champagnat.org (19/06/2009), Br. Eduardo Navarro had been appointed Director of these courses, replacing Br. Javier Espinosa who had completed his two terms. The General Chapter resulted in several changes having to be made to appointments made by the previous general government, and one of these was in the area of the continuing formation of the Institute. Following the election of Br. Ernesto Sánchez Barba as Councillor General, México Occidental had to carry out a new sondage for the election of a Provincial; and it was Br. Eduardo Navarro who was nominated. He took up office in December 2009. Since the situation was urgent, Br. Javier Espinosa accepted the request of the Superior General to direct the « Pathway » course, programmed for the first term 2010 (Read more).

Brother Ángel Medina Bermúdez was born in Albacete, Spain, and began his Marist formation in the juniorate of Llinars del Vallés (Barcelona) in 1969. In 1971 he made novitiate at Les Avellanes. For many years he exercised his mission in the houses of formation, in Spain as well as in the Marist District of Paraguay, in which he was incorporated in 1987. He is presently Superior of the District, an office he has already held several times, as well as member of the presidential body of CLAR (Confederation of the Religious of Latin America). His participation and his experience in the Conference of Religious of Paraguay and in CLAR bring a great richness to Br. Angel’s contribution in the animation of our Marist religious life, as well as a deep and ecclesial vision.

Congratulations to Br. Angel, and our best wishes for fruitful work at the head of the continuing formation courses. Our thanks to him and the District of Paraguay for this specific contribution they offer to the service of the vitality of Marist life.
