The second regular meeting of the Conference of Superiors of the African Continent (CSAC) took place in Nairobi from 31 July to 3 August.  Normally this second annual meeting is devoted to financial matters and budgets.  But, in addition to these matters, some others were discussed, in connection with the operation and future of the MIC and the MUIC.  T

he religious and formative aspects of the post-novitiate for young African Brothers is the responsibility of MIC while the academic aspect is the responsibility of MIUC (Marist International University College).  A number of people assisted at the meeting : those in charge of the finance office and accounting for both institutions, the members of the Finance Commission, the Superior of MIC and the director of MIUC, and, for one session, Mr Luca Olivari, the consultant sent by the General Administration.  Their purpose was to look for fresh alternatives in providing for this important step in Marist formation.

Another significant matter on the agenda was a reflection on the creation of a new international community at Atlantis (Cape Town, South Africa), proposed by the Conference and approved by the General Council.  Br Chris Wills, director of Cmi in Rome, Secretariat for the Collaboration of Mission International, helped to provide the context and details of outstanding questions, and offered some lines of action for their decision.

There was also a time for the African Mission Commission to make its contribution to the Conference, regarding action on the priorities selected to implement the New Models Project.

Having concluded its agenda, the Conference voted to keep Br Francis Lukong as its President.

At the end of the last day, there was a Mass and a special meal, together with the whole community of MIC, as way of thanking the formators and superiors finishing their mandates.  Of note was the inauguration of the new Superior of MIC, Br Albert Nzabonaliba, replacing Br Lawrence Ndawala.

The CSAC is made up of the four Brother Provincials of Nigeria, Central-East Africa, Madagascar and Southern Africa, the District Superior of West Africa and the Superior of MIC.  The two new Provincials already named for Nigeria and Madagascar also took part in the meeting, as well as Br Antonio Ramalho, one the link General Councillors between Rome and Africa.
