Meeting of new Provincials at the General House in Rome

21/06/2004: General House

The Brothers recently nominated as Provincials and those who have already been in office for a brief time are currently meeting in Rome, from the 16th to the 25th June. This meeting gives them the chance to meet and dialogue with the Superior General and his Council and to discuss and consider themes of animation and government that are appropriate for their office. The Provincials are nominated by the Superior General and his Council, after consultation with the Brothers of their province.

The Brothers that are attending this session are: Fernando Mejía (México Central), Víctor Preciado (México Occidental), John Klein (USA), Demetrio Espinosa (Cruz del Sur), Claudino Falchetto (Brasil Centro-Norte), Carl Tapp (New-Zealand), Manuel Manny de Leon (Philippines) et Laurentino Albalá (Norandina).

To be Provincial today is to unite the Brothers, the communities and the lay people who share in the spirituality and Marist mission so as to bring to life the charism of Saint Marcellin in the service of children and young people. The geographic sectors for which they are responsible are generally quite spread out so they count on the collaboration of their own Council for the animation and government of their Province. At the General House, as well as the time devoted to the sessions and meeting together, the Provincials have had the chance to discuss matters that are appropriate to their responsibilities and to get to know better those who are working in the General Administration.
