Josep (Pep) Buetas



New Co-Director of the Secretariat of the Laity

31/07/2013: General House

During the Last plenary session, the General Council appointed co-director of the Secretariat of Laity Mr. Josep (Pep) Buetas, from the Province of L'Hermitage. He replaced Ms. Ana M ª Sarrate Adot, who has been a member of the Bureau of the Laity since 2008. Here down you can know a litle about Pep.


I am 45 years old, married to Mercè, and have three children, Ana (15), Clara (12) and Oriol (9). We live in Barcelona. I am the third of four children. We all studied in a Marist school.

I remember how Marcellin fascinated me since I was a boy. The life of the brothers, their joy, their style, their community life and – as I realized more and more with age – their friendship and closeness have shaped me as a person, a Christian and a Marist. I am grateful to God for granting me so many gifts and, above all, because I can share this way of life with my family.

class=imgshadowI am a Marist educator but at the moment I am working in the general coordination of the Marist educational centers of Catalonia, and also in the field of provincial animation of the Marist laity, as the person in charge of the Lay and Brothers Communion Secretariat. I am also part of the Lay and Brothers Communion European Commission.

As a couple, Mercè and I did a year-long experience of international cooperation in Paraguay, while living in the brothers’ community. We used to be part of a fraternity of the Champagnat Movement, and now participate in a Marist life group, in which there are brothers and lay Marists.

And we shall go on sharing...
