MAPAC gets new rector: Brother John Hazelman

26/01/2017: Philippines

Brother John Hazelman has been appointed as the new rector of the Marist Asian Pacific Center for a term of three years, replacing Brother Peter Rodney.

Superior general Brother Emili Turú made the appointment on the recommendation of the MAPAC Board of Superiors.

Br Peter called on the MAPAC community to thank and to welcome him and underscored that “in addition to first-hand experience of the dynamics of our intercultural formation community, John also brings international Marist involvement and perspective, and proven capability in leadership and administration.”

The former rector also thanked John for his “generosity in putting aside his ministries in the Pacific to return to MAPAC.”

Br John, who will take up office in April 1, was also elected by the Pacific District to be their representative in the upcoming XXII General Chapter.

Brother John was born on Oct. 6, 1968 in Western Samoa and made his first profession on Nov. 21, 1992.

He graduated from MAPAC in 1998 and made his perpetual profession on Jan. 20, 2001.

He holds a Master’s degree in pastoral counselling from La Salle University in Manila. He also studied at the Institute of Religious Formation in Chicago and at the Formation Training Institute in Manila.

He was a staff member of MAPAC from 2005 – 2011, during which time he was vice rector and acting rector (for six months). He is currently the principal at the Marist Primary School Mulivai in Samoa.
