20/07/2015: Brazil

 The province of Brasil Centro-Norte will have a new superior in December for the next three years.

In a letter released July 13, Superior General Emili Turú announced the appointment of Brother Ataíde José de Lima as the new provincial superior of Brasil Centro-Norte.

According to a press release from the province, Br Ataíde received the news as “a great responsibility and does not doubt the presence and action of God, and the protection of Our Lady.” 

The Marist stressed that “our aspirations, desires and limits are also opportunities to overcome them so I make the words of Mary unto the angel ‘let it be to me according to your will’ my own words, in the hope of being a reflection of the mercy and goodness of God for my brothers.” 

Br Ataíde will take up office in December during the next provincial chapter, which will be held in the town of Mendes, within the state of Rio de Janeiro.

In his letter, Brother Emili thanked the current provincial, Br Wellington Mousinho de Medeiros, for his “excellent service provided during the six years of his mandate” and expressed “huge gratitude of the Brothers of the Provine and the General Council for his work.” 

Br Ataíde was appointed after a consultation was made with the Brothers who belong to the province, which include 16 states and the Federal District.

The Marist was born in Mogi das Cruzes. He has a degree in history from the Federal University of Goiás and a post graduate degree in higher education methodology of the Faculty of Education of the state of Minas Gerais.

Br Ataíde was director of the Marist College of Goiânia and was a formator at the formation houses of the Marist Brothers

Until he takes up office, he will continue his role as director secretary of the UBEE and UNBEC, as well as vice provincial of Brasil Centro-Norte, positions he has held since 2012.

He has been a member of the provincial council since 2009.
