Enlarged General Council of Marist Europe (1)

Brother Superior General and his Council invited the Provincial Councils of Europe to a meeting at the Hermitage (France) from 13 to 16 March 2011.  This brought together the Councils of five provinces: Compostela, Central West Europe, Ibérica, L'Hermitage and Mediterránea. The region of Europe has a new configuration on the European map since restructuring. Now it covers 17 countries, distributed as follows:

  • Compostela. Completed restructuring on 2 January 2004 and is present in Spain (Castilla + León), Honduras and Portugal
  • Central West Europe. Date of restructuring:15 April 2000. Includes Germany, Belgium, Great Britain, Holland and Ireland
  • Ibérica. Restructuring completed on 26 November 2003. Currently present in Spain (Madrid + Norte) and Rumania, which was incorporated in the Province on 12 July 2003.
  • The Province of L'Hermitage completed restructuring on 29 July 2003.It includes  Argelia, Spain (Catalonia), France, Greece, Hungary and Switzerland. The Swiss communities were incorporated into the former Province of Beaucamps-St. Genis on 30  December 1999 and then passed to the Hermitage.
  • Mediterránea. Date of restructuring: 6 August 2003. Present in Spain (Bética + Levante), Italy, Lebanon and Syria. The communities of Lebanon and Syria were incorporated in the former Bética Province on 30 June 2000.

The brothers in Europe are distributed as follows: Compostela (227), Central West Europe (147), Ibérica (183), L'Hermitage (350) and Mediterránea (229). In total: 1,136.

 

Objectives of the meeting

The brothers propose during this time toanalyze the situation of the provinces of Europe and their prospects for the coming years, within the present context of the Church and Religious Life on the continent. To construct together, with realism and faith, a vision for Marist life in Europe, taking as starting point the calls of the 21 General Chapter as well as the progress made by each province in response to this call: What is the “new land” to which we are called to journey collectively in Europe? To define the main options for the future as Marist Europe for the next few years in accord with the vision formulated.

To proceed, they propose to adopt a methodology of participative typefacilitating maximum interaction, giving value to the richness of each group.To favour fraternal dialogue as basic attitude: what is the Lord saying to us for the life of the Institute and for our activity as leaders through an attentive listening.
