The members of the regional committee of Arco Norte met on September 29th and 30th in the Provincial House of Guatemala City. Present at the event were :  Socorro Álvarez (M.C.), Irma Zamarripa (M.O.), Bro. José Sánchez (Provincial M.C.), Bro. Gregorio Linacero (A.C.), Bro. Justino Gómez (M.C.), H. Félix Roldán (Canada), H. Albert Rivera (U.S.A.) and H. Alejandro González (M.O.).

After a period of prayer led by Brother Gregorio, Brother José Sánchez, Provincial of Central Mexico and delegate of the Brother Provincials in the team, congratulated and encouraged the work done by the group, which over the years has demonstrated great effort and quality in the projects carried out. José encouraged the members of the team to continue their work for the good of the region and of the Institute.

After reviewing the organisation chart of the regional structure and reviewing the different committees and work teams with their respective missions, goals, objectives and suggested programmes of activities, the different teams and commissions presented their progress showing their already planned programmes of activities, objectives, themes, responsibilities and costs. In this way: animation and vocational culture; Formation; Innovation in mission - Education and Evangelisation, Economes and, in a relevant way, Communication. Special attention was given to the reflection by the inter-regional teams on spirituality and solidarity.

Both Bro. Gregorio and Bro. José Sánchez reported on the innovative projects initiated by the General Administration, as well as the changes in the organisational structure for the animation of the 6 regions of the Institute.

Following the reports, the members developed the initiatives which they suggested to the Brothers Provincial to continue with the projects and activities which the committee has prepared for the region, so that they may be employed as useful tools for decision making.

Nicéforo Garrán presented what he saw at the meeting held in Rome for the creation of the World Network of Marist Schools. Brother presented the project and the global consultation that is being carried out for this purpose, and invited the participants to share their questions and opinions.

The meeting was an opportunity for the members of the team to get to know each other and share their efforts, ideas and concerns in favour of the mission entrusted to us. A delicate mission entrusted to us. We hope to be mindful of their recommendations in order to serve with greater quality.
