The General Council’s leadership and government

28/10/2004: General House

“FMS Message”, the official magazine of the Marist Brothers, has dedicated its latest edition to the presentation of the plan for the leadership of the Institute, developed by the General Council.
At the end of its work on the 13th October 2001, the General Chapter sent a document to all the members of the Congregation. Its title constitutes again today an invitation and a challenge, not only for them, but also for all who share the charism of Marcellin Champagnat: “Choose life”.
Inspired by this document, the General Council has developed its plan of leadership and government, which will direct its service to the Institute until the next General Chapter in 2009.
The magazine presents a well-articulated scheme. It describes the six commissions that are chaired by a General Councillor and co-ordinated by a Secretary. For each commission, the objectives are stated, the projects are outlined and the activities’ time line is indicated. The Superior General and his Vicar are not part of any of these commissions, yet they animate, support and direct the activity of each one and co-ordinate the initiatives of all of them.
Towards the end of the magazine, the work and services of each department of the General Administration in the General House are described. They provide the necessary organisational support so that ideas and decisions may be realised and communicated to the people for whom they are intended.
The middle section of the magazine covers an interesting interview with Goyo Domínquez, described by many as Saint Marcellin’s artist. Many of his works are presented in this magazine, both on the cover and inside. They are not only rich in content but also very pleasing to the eye.
