Marist presence in East Timor

20/12/2013: East Timor

The Marist presence in East Timor has seen significant developments during 2013. Recently we accepted three young men to begin their novitiate in 2014. This will be in Sri Lanka, starting in June with novices from East Timor, Vietnam and Pakistan. Great news.

There are other resident aspirants ready to become postulants in 2014 and more aspirants ready to start. To accommodate this new family we have purchased a piece of land near Bacau and will build a formation house on it.

To strengthen our capacity to support this new growth in a country where people are more familiar with Portuguese than English, we have forged a link with Marists in Brazil. Already we have an assistant formator from there. We are also working with the Brazilian Provincials to plan a Marist school in the coming years.
