Birthday celebration at the Generalate



Brother Superior General turns 60 years of age

18/12/2007: General House - Photo gallery

Brother Seán Sammon’s birthday was celebrated at the Generalate with sentiments of joy and gratitude. It was the occasion for Brother Seán to add a new digit when he does his personal accounting of entering his sixth decade.

In good spirits and brimming with joy, Sean shared freely and ingenuously with the whole Generalate his pleasure in opening a new year of life as gift from God

The celebration was attended by all of the Brothers and lay colleagues who work at the Generalate. First of all there was a meeting near Brother Seán’s office at the top of the main staircase. Here the assembled group thanked God for Seán’s life and for his commitment to the Congregation. After the prayer, we moved to the Sala Champagnat for a toast and short reception during which a series of photos were projected, following Sean along the life stages which have brought him to his sixtieth year. Vicar General, Brother Luis Sobrado presented Sean with a table clock. Brother Sean then responded with words of thanks, to God and to all present, for the compliments rendered.
Afterwards all repaired to the dining room for a meal held in a warm, festive atmosphere.

Brother Seán was born November 26, 1947 in Manhattan (New York, USA). He has been at the service of the Brothers and of Institute laity since October 3, 2001, the date on which he was elected Superior General at a plenary session of General Chapter XX.

We thank God, Mary our Good Mother, and Saint Marcellin Champagnat for the gift which Sean has been to us, for his outstanding service to the Congregation, while asking that Sean be kept in good health for many years to come.
