Br Wellington Mousinho de Medeiros

21/06/2012: General House

Following the sondage held in the Province, the General Council has decided to reappoint Br Wellington Mousinho de Medeiros as Provincial of « Brasil Centro-Norte », for a second three year term. Br Wellington will commence his mandate on the occasion of the holding of the Provincial Chapter in December.

When he was appointed Provincial, Br Wellington committed himself to working for the construction of unity in the Province. He entrusted his service of animation and government to Our Good Mother, telling the Brothers he would only be the vicar of Mary, the first Superior. To gain the desired unity, he asked of all understanding and a sincere desire to live what the General Chapter said about restructuring : live the process and readily assume it. At the 3rd Provincial Chapter, the Province took as motto : « With Mary, to construct without delay the unity of theProvince ». The urgency of the new land spoken of by the General Chapter became, for the Province, the new land of unity. This is what Br Wellington and his Council have tried to do during their first term.
