The Province of Canada transfers its mission of Haiti to that of México Occidental

11/09/2006: Haiti

On the occasion of the 10th Assembly of the Conference of Latin American Provincials at Los Teques in Venezuela, the General Council had supported the request of the Province of Canada to transfer its Marist mission of Haiti to another Province in the region due to the difficulties in finding brothers to animate the mission of this country.

The Provincial Council of the Province of México Occidental, after having consulted the brothers of the Province during their assembly on the 31st March 2005, took up the challenge to incorporate the sector of Haiti into the Province. The General Council had planned to effect this transfer during the General Conference in Sri Lanka in September 2005 but after meeting with the Provinces of Arco Norte during this Conference, it was decided to postpone this after having undertaken exchanges on the restructuring in the region.

At the start of June 2006, the Brother Provincial of Canada sent a report to the General Council, describing the current difficulties in starting the school year in Haiti in September mainly due to the health problems of several brothers and Brother Cloutier suggested the acceleration of this transfer.

Profiting from the presence in Rome of Brother Víctor Preciado, Provincial of México Occidental, who had come to a meeting of the International Council of Financial Affairs, of which he is a member, the General Council spoke with him and approved, in principle, the transfer of the mission of Haiti to the Province of México Occidental. As from this time, contact between the Provinces of México Occidental and of Canada started in order to fix the conditions and procedures of the transfer.
