An efficient and audacious development of restructuring



The Marist Union of Brazil, UMBRASIL, holds its third General Assembly

21/03/2007: Brazil

On the 26th and 27th February, the Marist Union of Brazil, UMBRASIL, held its third General Assembly in Brazlândia-DF. The members of the Councils of the Marist Province of Brasil Centro-Norte, of the Marist Province of Brasil Centro-Sul and of the Marist Province of Rio Grande do Sul, the District Superior of Amazônia, the Presidents of the Mantenedoras Civiles (the Provinces as juridical entities) and of the directing Assembly of UMBRASIL were present. On the agenda were important subjects such as the election of the new directing Assembly and of the Financial Council, organs that continued to have the same members.

During the Assembly, one noted the great harmony and participative interest of the Marists of Brazil. UMBRASIL is the Interprovincial Organism created two years ago to promote actions in the milieu of social assistance, of education, of teaching, of research, of culture, of the ambient milieu, of health, of geriatrics, of social communication, of human promotion, of the protection of children and youth. All of that everywhere in the country, by respecting the pertinent legislation, by always seeking social improvement and the struggle against poverty in Brazil.

In this sense, UMBRASIL is an efficient and audacious development of the restructuring recently carried out in the Provinces. In all, the spaces of consecrated life, of the laity, of mission and of management function in a co-ordinated fashion through commissions, sub-commissions and work teams which regularly meet at the headquarters of UMBRASIL.

UMBRASIL will be more and more the organ for energising the charism and the dream of Marcellin and the maternal presence of Mary.
