Formation course for bursars

24/05/2019: Philippines

Since the 20th of May, 20 participants, Brothers and lay people, have been following a formation programme in the Philippines, for bursars and others working in the area of economic administration in the Administrative Units. The course, developed in English and which will finish on the 8th of June, is taking place in the Business College of the University Notre Dame of Dadiangas, in the city of General Santos. 

"It is necessary to have concrete activities, efficient structures, transparent and responsible administration at all the levels of the Institute", said Brother Libardo Garzón, Econome General, present at the opening of the course and responsible for presenting to the group a general vision of the economy in the Institute. 

Taking part in the meeting were Marists from Africa, Oceania and Asia. Coming from the Provinces of South Africa, PACE, Nigeria, Madagascar, East Asia, South Asia; and two districts, West Africa and Asia. 

Also taking part in the course: 3 Marist Missionary Sisters, a Marist Sister, and a lay person. 

Besides helping the participants with technical formation, the course is intended to promote a common understanding on how to negotiate with responsibility and transparency the goods with which they deal in the Administrative Units, which are at the service of the Marist charism and mission. 

The group also studies the document from the Vatican "Economy at the Service of the Charism and the Mission", published in 2018 by the Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated Life and the Societies of Apostolic Life. 

Encouraged  by the Econome General, the objective is to form those responsible for the economic administration to guarantee the sustainability of the Marist life and mission, thanks to concrete plans of action in all of the Administrative Units which are based on principles of transparency at all levels.

This is the second course.The first one took place in October in Portuguese and Spanish.
