FMSI’s new board, in charge of accompanying and overseeing the foundation’s work regarding the promotion and defense of the rights of children, met in Rome from July 25 – 29.

Appointed by the general council and presided by general councillor Brother Michael de Waas, its members are vice president Jimena Djaura Grignani from Brazil, econome general Brother Libardo Garzón, Gianfranco Cattai from Italy, Brother Allen Sherry from Australia and Inmaculada Maillo from Spain.

During these days, the board was able to reflect further on the functioning of FMSI, in order to get to know firsthand their performance and to share these reflections with the people that carry out its work on a daily basis.   

New members highlighted the meeting’s fraternal atmosphere and expressed gratitude for having been chosen to form part of the board and for being able to take part in the mission “Making the world a better place for children and youth.”

From now on and with the rest of the people who form part of FMSI, the board will seek to stay close to the most vulnerable children and youth. In doing this, they hope to make the dream of Marcellin Champagnat a reality and to contribute to building a more just and united world, in which all boys and girls can have their rights guaranteed and a better future.

But they affirmed that they are convinced this cannot be achieved without the collaboration of the whole Institute, since this mission depends on all people who make up the Marist Institute and to which as Marists they should feel called to.
