Meeting of the Commission of Mission of Asia

02/06/2016: Philippines

The Commission of Mission of Asia met from May 19 – 21 in Notre Dame de Marbel University in Koronadal City, the Philippines. 

Participants included Brothers Francis Attah (Asia District), Mervyn Perera (South Asia), Willy Lubrico (East Asia) and João Carlos do Prado, of the Secretariat of Mission.

The following topics were covered: an evaluation of the Asian Assembly of the Marist mission held in December 2015 in Negombo, Sri Lanka; the New Models project and its implementation in Asia; guidelines and projects of the Secretariat of Mission prepared with the support of the International Commission of Mission; and the elaboration of the Strategic Plan of 2017 – 2019 of the Commission of Mission of Asia.

The Asian Commission of Mission is a strategic and technical group designed by the Marist Conference of Asia for animation, strengthening and coordination of the Marist mission in the continent in cooperation with the Secretariat of Mission. Its strategic plan includes three objectives for 2019:

  • To promote the formation of Marist leadership for the mission geared towards Brothers and laity;
  • To promote an effective collaboration and networking within the Marist mission and assure its sustainability;
  • To expand its programmes and services in favour of the poor and the youth.

On May 20, the Commission assisted the first religious profession of second year novices of the Cotabato novitiate. It also had the opportunity of visiting the first Marist school founded in the Philippines by Brothers of the United States of America.

The Commission took part in the 11th Congress of the Marist Mission of the East Asia Province from May 22 – 25, which included over 150 participants.

This gathering favoured a great opportunity for knowledge, communion and the support of the Marist mission in the region. The Commission appreciates the warm welcome and the support of their work.
