The ordinary assembly elects new posts

29/02/2016: Brazil

The Marist Union of Brasil, known as UMBRASIL, celebrated its twelfth ordinary general assembly on Feb. 18 – 19.
During the event, the new members of the organisation’s management team took up office and approved the projects for 2016.
Brother Joaquim Esperandio, the new president of the Council, spoke about the Marist spirit that prevails in Brazil and appealed for it to increase among Marists.
“We are living in an environment of unity and openness of heart,” stated Br Joaquim. “It would be really good that that would increasingly intensify among us.”
“We need to walk together, integrated and thinking about what is best for the Marist Brazil,” he added.
UMBRASIL was founded in 2005 and is formed by three Brazilian provinces.
During the assembly, the following brothers took up these positions:
Brothers Joaquim Sperandio, Brasil Centro-Sur province (council president); Deivis Fischer, Brasil Sur-Amazonia province (director - president); Vanderlei Siqueira, Brasil Centro-Sur province (director - secretary); Humberto Gondim, Brasil Centro-Norte province (director - treasurer). 
The following brothers form the administration’s Council: Brothers Jorge Gaio (Brasil Centro-Sur), Lauro Hochscheidt (Brasil Sur-Amazonia) and Renato Augusto da Silva (Brasil Centro-Norte).
