América Sur’s regional committee meets in Curitiba

02/04/2018: Brazil

From March 20 – 23, América Sur’s regional committee, hosted by the Brazil Centro Sul province, met at the Marist House Champagnat Marcelino (CMMC), in Curitiba, with the objective of advancing the strategic initiatives and to plan the next general assembly of the provincial councils of the América Surregion, which will be held from July 3 – 6 in Porto Alegre, coordinated by the Brazil Sur Amazonia province.

It was the first meeting of the regional committee that was attended by the newly appointed executive secretary of the América Surregion, Brother Natalino Guilherme de Sousa, who also serves as the executive secretary of UMBRASIL.

Paulo Serino, member of the Institute’s Secretariat of Mission, and Brother Mark Omede, the secretariat’s assistant director, took part in this meeting after they were invited by the regional committee.

The meeting marked the farewell of Brother Jorge Gaio of the regional committee, replaced by Brother Tiago Fedel, present at the meeting.

During the days of the meeting, participants reflected on the works developed by the teams of each of the strategic projects: strategic plan, novitiate and regional formation, vocational animation, identification of experts, network of schools, network of economies and communication.

The results will be presented to the provincial councils in the regional assembly in July of this year in Porto Alegre.

The strategic projects will contribute to the region’s consolidation, the strengthening of the regional identity and the integration of the provinces that make up the América Sur region, bearing in mind the vitality of the mission and the Marist charism.

The Institute is made up of six regions. The América Sur region includes five provinces: Brasil Centro-Norte, Brasil Centro-Sul, Brazil Sul-Amazonia, Cruz del Sur and Santa Maria de los Andes.
