Brother Patrick McNamara



International community of Prévessin-Moëns

15/03/2014: United States

The General Council has appointed Brother Patrick McNamara, from the Province of United States as a member of the international community of Prévessin-Moëns (in France, near the Swiss border) effective October 1, 2014. 3 members out of 4 of this community are currently at the service of our FMSI mission before the United Nations in Geneva (Switzerland), particularly with regard to the Committee on the Rights of the Child and the Human Rights Council.

Brother Patrick will complete the current school year as the President of Marist High School in Chicago before moving to his new assignment in Europe. 

Br. Emili Turú, in his letter to Brother Ben Consigli, Provincial, and the Brothers of the Province of the USA communicating the nomination, says: Our last General Chapter endorsed the decision taken by the General Council ten years ago, and encouraged us “to promote, at all levels of our Institute, the rights of children and young people, and to advocate these rights in government, non-government and other public institutions.” I believe the Institute has made great progress in this field, which is basically another aspect of our mission among children and youth, especially those who are in situations of greatest vulnerability. We are convinced that the appointment of Brother Patrick will continue to strengthen this mission before the United Nations, and to the animation of the entire Institute regarding the rights of children and young people.
