Contact Visit of Brothers Oscar and Ken, General Councillors

03/05/2019: Madagascar

From the 2nd to the 8th of April, the Province of Madagascar extended a warm welcome to two General Councillors, Brothers Ken McDonald and Óscar Martín. Accompanied by Bro. Provincial, Maminiaina Michel, they managed to visit a number of projects and meet several brothers and committed laymen involved in the life and Marist mission of the Province.  

During their visit, the Councillors met the members of the Provincial Council for a period of dialogue and exchanges concerning the situation of the Province. This time led to a rich reflection on the strengths, the opportunities and the challenges facing the Province.  

They also shared time with the postulants. Currently, the province contains 11 postulants, 7 of whom are in their second year and 4 in their first year. After the postulantship, which lasts for two years, the young men follow their religious formation in the Novitiate of Save in Rwanda.  

The objective of this contact visit is to get an idea of the situation and context of Marist life and mission in Madagascar. The next visit will be longer and will deal with all the projects as well as the people involved.
