Brother David McDonald



Pacific district superior will serve a second term

26/09/2016: New Zealand

After a consultation in the Pacific district, the General Council has appointed Brother David G. McDonald as district superior for a second three-year term. 

“I would like to thank Br David McDonald for his openness and willingness to serve the Institute in this mission as Superior,” wrote Superior General Brother Emili Turú in a letter to the Brothers of the district on Sept. 2. “The results of the consultation show clearly that he enjoys vast support from the brothers of the district.”

Br David, who was first appointed superior in 2013, will begin his second term on Dec. 18 at the beginning of the District Chapter.

Before 2013, he had served for three years as superior of the Province of New Zealand, which ceased to exist after the creation of the Pacific district in 2013. 

Br David was principal of Hato Petera College in Auckland, New Zealand, from 1997 – 2010.

He is the first Maori, the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand, to have held the position of provincial superior and, since 2013, of district superior.

The Pacific district includes New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa and Kiribati.
