Extended General Council Meeting - 1



North America

18/11/2004: United States

During the past few months, the General Council has visited the Provinces of Canada and the United States of America. There were different stages in which the visit was carried out: the spiritual retreats held in summer and then the visits to the communities to meet the brothers and to come to a greater awareness of their apostolic work. There were also opportunities to meet with groups of brothers and laypeople working in our schools or participating in the Marist Family movement.

The delegates of the Brother Superior General for the visit to Canada were Brothers Antonio Ramalho C.G., Maurice Berquet C.G. and Rémy Véricel (Province of L’Hermitage). For the United States of America, the visit was conducted by Brothers Pedro Herreros C.G., Théoneste Kalisa C.G. and Henry Spinks (Province of New Zealand). The Superior General and Vicar General were present for three very important events: the initial programming meeting at the start of the visit, the animation of the retreats and the final evaluation meeting.
Now is the time to share, to compare, to assess and to attempt to define some guidelines and directions to help in planning for the future. To achieve this, the General Council has organised a meeting attended by the Provincial Councils of the Provinces of Canada and of the United States of America.

The General Council met together at Maryknoll from the 15th to the 17th November to prepare for this meeting by sharing and appraising the visits just completed. The extended meeting including the Provincial Councils is from the 18th to the 20th November.
