The Brother Provincial Economes of the Marist Africa region held several work sessions in Rome during the first two weeks of May 2008. First of all they participated in meetings of the International Council for Economic Affairs (CIAE) which studies the policies of financial management for the whole Institute. These joint work sessions permitted them to share the economic reality of each administrative unit of the region and to strengthen the relationship maintained between the Provincial Economes and the General Administration.

Secondly, the Brothers Econome shared among themselves criteria and perspectives of the application of the general policies of the Institute in each one of the administrative units of this region. This meeting focused on the application of the approaches that were suggested in Nairobi during the meeting of the brothers on the Provincial and District Councils of Africa, together with the General Council, in December of 2006.

In addition, the presence of the brothers from the African region in Rome was an opportunity to meet with the Commission on the Evangelical Use of Goods. This commission is developing a series of practical programs to try to bring everyday financial management in line with what the General Chapter defined.

Participating in these meetings were Brothers Anthony (Aidan) Bridge, Southern Africa; Francisco (Kiko) Baeza, East Central Africa; Matthew Mary Ogudu and Basil Dominic Nwude, Nigeria and José Antonio Ruiz Abeijón, District of West Africa.

The General House experienced excellent days of fraternity and family spirit through the presence of these brothers from the African continent.
