A new model for community and mission



General Assembly of Solidarity with South Sudan

12/12/2015: Italy

The annual General Assembly of Solidarity with South Sudan took place in Rome, 10 December 2015. The project began in 2005 at the invitation to the Unions of Superiors General [USG and UISG] by the South Sudanese Bishops. 

Representatives of twenty congregations attended the assembly and the brothers were represented by Brother Colin Chalmers and Brother Chris Wills who is a member of the Governing Board and Econome for the association.

Marists have three representatives in South Sudan, Brothers Christian, Longinus and Matthew Mary, all from the Province of Nigeria. The brothers are members of three different inter-congregational communities composed of lay members, sisters, brothers and priests.

There are 32 people from 20 congregations and 16 nationalities represented in the South Sudan. This is a new model for community and mission which challenges its members to live inter-culturally.
