Synod on the New Evangelization



Br Emili Turú will take part in the coming Synod

29/09/2012: General House

From 7 to 28 of October, the XIII General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will be held in Rome on the theme “The new evangelization for the transmission of the Christian faith”.  On 8 September, Br Emili received a notification from the Secretary of the Synod that Pope Benedict XVI has personally appointed him to participate in the works of the synod.

Although the great majority of the members of the Synod are Bishops, the synodal process includes the presence of a certain number of other persons (priests, religious and laity) by reason of their personal experience and the specific preparation in relation to the theme to be treated and studied by the members of the Synod.

This appointment is proof of the confidence the Holy Father has in our Superior General and, at the same time, recognition of the work performed by the Marist Institute in the evangelizing mission of the Church.
