Meeting of the network of bursars’s offices of América Sur



Encounter of the Administrators of five Provinces

07/09/2016: General House

Provincial administrators of the new Marist region  América Sur gathered with lay collaborators of each province in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from Aug. 12 - 16  to create a network of bursars’ offices.    

The five provinces of the region participated: Northern Central Brazil, Southern Central Brazil,  Sul-Amazonia Brazil, Santa Maria de los Andes and Cruz del Sur as host.  

In this work they were accompanied by Brother Libardo Garzón, General Bursar and Lucas Olivari, adviser or consultant  of the New Models of Animation, Governance and Management project.

The encounter forms part of the “azul” project of the region, which seeks to construct the network of Bursars’ Offices as a support  structure for the region.  

The first objective, which was amply attained, was to know and share the economic-financial reality and the administrsative organization of each one of the provinces. The data or information contained in the Marist “Domus” allowed us to see clearly, transparently the information and to know the achievements and challenges that we face.  

The information about the strategic projects of the Marist Institute and their implications for our region, made us aware of our belonging to a broader reality and aroused our sense of responsibility for it. Throughout the encounter, there was the prayer animated by each province which maintained us attentive to the action of the Lord who builds the house. The hospitality of the community of the provincial house of Cruz del Sur, for which we are profoundly grateful, made us experience that we have “only one heart and one same spirit.”

From the encounter emerged six initiatives on which the members of the meeting will work, in working groups, according to the priority suggested by the implementation team of the region and the result of our own sharing as bursars. The majority of these projects must be designed or outlined by November and shared with the members of the network.  

The next meeting was fixed for the 11 and 12 of May 2017, in Brazilia.
