New Province Mission Council begins it mandate

26/02/2013: Australia

The Province of Australia, which officially commenced on 8 December last year, has introduced a new model for leadership of the Province. The work of the Provincial Council will be much smaller, because has delegated much its responsibility to the “Province Mission Council”. In future, the Provincial Council will consider matters limited to the Brothers’ life and some canonical matters, while the Mission Council will deal with everything that concern the ministries and works of the Province and also with Lay Marists. For example, everything regarding schools, youth ministry, solidarity and social welfare projects will be supervised entirely by the Mission Council.

The charter for the Mission Council was endorsed by the Province Mission Assembly last year, and formally approved by the new Provincial Council at its first meeting in January. Its members (both Lay and Brother) were nominated by the delegates to the Mission Assembly. It consists of four Lay Marists and two Marist Brothers, and is chaired by the Provincial. The Executive Director of Ministries (currently a Brother – Michael Green – but in future probably a Lay Marist) is also in attendance. The Council held its first meeting on 6 February, and the new head office for the Province which is located in close proximity to Sydney Airport.
