New affiliation to the Marist Institute

29/08/2011: Brazil

On 13 August 2011, in the chapel of the Colegio Marista Ribeirão Preto, in the state of São Paulo, Brasil, during the mass celebrated on Fathers’ Day, the Provincial Superior, Bro. Davide Pedri, presented the diploma of affiliation to the Marist Institute to Mr João Batista de Figueiredo Faria. The chapel was packed with teachers, fathers of students and friends of the recipient. His family were also present. In his thanksgiving speech, the newly affiliated stated that his Marist life had started at the age of 11, and that he would continue to be a Marist until the end. Mr João Batista de Figueiredo Faria was a teacher at the college, then its advisor and administrator. For 40 years he had distinguished himself by his qualities and attachment to the Marist mission, in the College as well as the Social Work the Province conducts in the city of Ribeirão Preto. At present, he is working in the parish and the diocese as co-ordinator of the Fraternity “Caminheiros de Maria”. Congratulations, Mr João Batista!
