Promoting economic autonomy and sustainability of the Marist Mission



Sustainability Workshop in the Marist Province of Southern Africa

26/05/2019: Malawi

The workshop on sustainability of the mission in the Marist Province of Southern Africa took place from 14th May to 16th May 2019 at Msamba Catholic Centre in Lilongwe, Malawi. The participants included both Brothers (26) and Lay (6). They were drawn from six countries that form the province – Angola (4), Malawi (9), Mozambique (4), South Africa (2), Zambia (4), Zimbabwe (4), Province Administration (2) and formation houses (3).

In his opening remarks, Br. Norbert Mwila, Provincial, encouraged the participants to use this time well and aim at what can help us toward sustainability of the province.

This workshop’s objective was to promote economic autonomy and sustainability of the Marist Mission in our province through an effective, transparent, and participatory strategic and pastoral planning. It centered on what we do (our mission) as a Province in relation to sustainability and it helped to evaluate the Provincial Strategic Plan 2016-2019.

Facilitators, Br. José Augusto Jr and Rony introduced the methodology. The participants produced a Mission statement and Vision statements. SWOT analysis was done up to a matrix dealing with the ideal. Due to time constraints, more work is pending to cover the 7 approved matrices which is part of the content of the first workshop in the project.  

Br. Dias Gemusse and Fernando Baptista made communication easier through their translation expertise.
