Appointments and News

28/08/2012: General House

During May, June and July, the General Council renewed the mandates of a number of provincials: Brs Libardo Garzón (Norandina), Ricardo Reynoso (México Central), Wellington Mousinho de Medeiros (Brasil Centro Norte), Inácio Nestor Etges (Rio Grande do Sul, H. Valentin Djawu (Central East Africa), Antonio Giménez (Mediterránea). Br Jeffrey Crowe was also appointed first provincial of “Australia”, the new province formed by merging the present ones of Melbourne and Sydney.

The General Council also renewed the mandates of several members of the General Administration:

* Br Pietro Bettin (Mediterránea), as superior of the general house community, for three years;
* Br José María Ferre (Mediterránea), as personal secretary of the Superior General, for three years;
* Br Juan Moral (L’Hermitage), as archivist general of the Institute, for one year;
* Br Roy Deita (East Asia), as assistant to the Econome General, for two months, to the end of October 2012.

The Teams from Manziana and El Escorial met for several days in Rome with the members of the Secretariat “Brothers today” to evaluate the program for community animators (2 sessions in each house for a total of 67 brothers). The evaluation of the teams, like that of the participants has been very positive. We believe that the dreams that emerged during the XXI General Chapter were able to continue taking concrete form during these months: internationality; fraternity in diversity; the practice of fraternal dialogue; living an integrated spirituality; new hearts for a new world; a Church with a Marian face; Hermitage experience on the basis of the lives of Fr Champagnat and the first Brothers; the challenge of the new communion of brothers and laity building community, etc.
