Fr John Larsen



New superior of the Society of Mary

02/10/2017: General House

Father John Larsen was elected on Sept. 30 as the fourteenth superior general of the Society of Mary, which is holding its general chapter in Nemi, Italy, from Sept. 20 – Oct. 11. Marcellin Champagnat was member of the Society of Mary.

Fr. John Larsen, born in 1955, belongs to the district of Asia and entered the Society in 1976. He carried out his ministry in the Philippines, Myanmar and Thailand.

He did his pastoral work in parishes, in prisons, with migrants, and was also a formator. He is currently a formator at the International Marist Theologate of Rome.

The Marist Institute, through the General Chapter that is taking place in Colombia, asks God to bless Fr. John, so that he can be at the service of his brothers in the Society of Mary and promote the charism of the Marist Family, to which the Marist Brothers belong.
