Affiliation to the Institute of secular priest Fr. Vilson Groh

10/06/2011: Brazil

The affiliation to the Institute of Fr. VILSON GROH took place on 28 May 2011 in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina State. The ceremony was held during the Mass in the Chapel of Caieiras, one of the social works established by Fr. VILSON on the island of Florianópolis. This social work is located on the highest point of a hill of Florianópolis, occupied by neglected and poor people.

For more than 30 years, since he was ordained priest, Fr. VILSON has been working on projects of social  inclusion, rights and citizenship, especially for children and young people. With a grant from the Province and the help of the young Brothers of Florianópolis (Scholastics), he has recently built two large social centres in the hills around the city: one on Monte Serrat and the other in Caieiras. His social groups are of recognized public value. Fr. VILSON has a great love and devotion for the Marist Brothers; he is an enthusiast of Saint  Marcellin Champagnat and admirer of Marist spirituality. He is a “man of God” in the sense of someone who is very human, very apostolic, and with a deep life of prayer. In the ceremony of affiliation, the Chapel of the “Obra Social Irmão Celso Conte” was full of ordinary people, friends, children and Brothers. On this occasion, Brothers Davide Pedri, Provincial, and Jorge Gaio, in charge of the Social Sector of the Province, took the opportunity once again to thank Fr. VILSON for his dedication to the Marist social works.
