Proposal of the Operational New Model for Marist Mission

24/11/2016: General House

Together, we make possible a new beginning!


1. Manual

2. Operational Model for Marist Mission - Official draft

The XXI General Chapter’s call “With Mary, go in haste of a new land!” has generated many processes of life in the different Administrative Units and Regions of the Institute. One of these processes has been the New Models Project that has helped us to look more closely at the heart of the Marist charism and to recognize ourselves as a single body, with a global vision and one international identity. 

In this process we are co-creators and responsible to build a better future for the Marist Life and Mission. We are grateful to you and congratulate you for the great commitment and leadership in steering the New Models implementation processes in the Administrative Units and Regions. We are well aware about the challenges which this process entails. On the other hand, we are very confident that it will generate far more vitality for the whole Institute and especially for the welfare of children and young people. 

To promote this new beginning, we are pleased to bring to your attention, and for your contribution, the official draft proposal of the Manual of Roles and Functions of the General Center for Marist Mission (GCMM). The document aims to establish common parameters for the functioning and the decision making of the Marist Mission’s organizational structure at the different levels of the Institute; while at the same time aims to clearly define the roles and functions of the various bodies that compose it.

As announced by Br. Emili Turu in his Communication n° 31, on 17 July 2016, “the General Administration is also studying the best way to respond to the new challenges for Marist mission today. Consequently, we have taken the decision to create a Mission Committee, as from January 2017. The Committee, comprising 10 members (4 from the General Administration and 6 from the Regions) will have, among its functions, the task of advising the General Council in all that concerns Marist mission. In particular, and in conjunction with the General Council, the Committee will study both the delegation of certain functions and authority, which could be taken on by a future Mission Council, as well as the services that mission may require at general level”.

The proposal regarding the CGMM could, in turn, inspire the organizational structures in the Regions and in the Administrative Units. In this regard, we have developed a proposal of roles and functions for the Regional Councils of Mission and the Administrative Units’ ones, aligned with the General Mission Council and the General Center for Marist Mission.
