FMSI turns its eyes towards a new land



Brother Mario Meuti director of the Rome base

02/03/2011: General House

Brother Emili Turú, Superior General, has just published the new organizational structure of the Fondazione Marista per la Solidarità Internazionale (FMSI), as well as the persons in charge of it. From today, the FMSI will have two bases, one in Rome and the other in Geneva, each with a director and both co-ordinated by a president (www.fmsi-onlus.org).

Brother Rick Carey, president of FMSI from 2009, had to resign from his post for reasons of health. Brother Jude Pieterse continued to act in his place, in the role of vice president, although he also left Rome in early December 2010. This situation of vacancy and provisional direction in the functioning of this institution, which manages the global solidarity projects in the Institute, has resulted in the decision taken by the General Council meeting in plenary session.

Brother Jim Jolley (Province of Melbourne), who took up his work in Geneva in September 2009, will continue responsible for directing the office in Geneva, entrusted especially with the defence and promotion of the Rights of Children, with a presence in the United Nations. He is associated in this work by Brothers Manel Mendoza (Hermitage) and Vicente Falqueto (Brasil Centro-Norte). For the office in Rome, the General Council has appointed as director Brother Mario Meuti. Brother Mario will be supported by Sara Panciroli and Angela Petenzi. The president of FMSI and co-ordinator of the two bases will be Brother  Michael De Waas, Councillor General.

The brothers from the Geneva office have come to Rome for a few days to take part in the planning meetings organised by the General Council, and to co-ordinate their activities with the other Bureaus, which are doing their planning for the next three years at this time. Brother Mario Meuti has been present at these joint planning meetings. All are studying the policies jointly in order to harmonise projects and activities in accordance with the directives received from the General Council.

MarioBrotherMario, 56, is of Italian nationality and belongs to the Mediterránea Province. He has worked as teacher and econome in Marist schools at Cesano Maderno, Taormina, Genova and San Leone Magno (Rome). He is at present director of the latter, and will remain so until June, when he takes up his new office as director of FMSI.
