Marist Calendar - September

Kate Fogarty


New co-director of the Secretariat of the laity

12/08/2016: General House

As Tony Clarke finishes his second triennial as co-director of the Secretariat, the General Council has appointed Kate Fogarty as new co-director for a first triennial. Kate will take part in the encounter of the continental commissions, which will take place in Hermitage in October. She will also participate in the meeting with the extended Secretariat, which will take place after the encounter.

Kate was educated with the Marists in Sale, a rural school in southern Australia and there she began her love towards the Marist life. She dedicated most part of her work (including the four years at the ‘Red Centre’ of Alice Springs of Australia) to the Marist Youth Ministry and to teaching in Marist schools. 

She is currently the director of Assumption College, Kilmore, one of the oldest schools of Australia and one of the most popular Marist centres.

Kate forms part of the Council of the Marist Association of Australia and she is also national councillor of Caritas Australia.

She participated in the Marist Assembly of Brazil in 2007.

In accepting this role, Kate shows her desire to provide a service to the Marist world internationally.

Tony Clarke has offered a beautiful contribution as member of the Secretariat from the start along with Brother Pau, for three years, and then as co-director during the past six years. A sincere thank you to Tony.
