Director of the Bureau of the Laity visits the United States

28/12/2007: United States

Brother Pau Fornells, Director of the Bureau of the Laity visited the United States Province from Sunday, November 11 through Wednesday, November 21. The purpose of Pau’s visit was to get a first hand impression and experience of the realities of Marist Laity in the US Marist schools and ministries.

Pau got a view of the entire Province through his attendance at the Sharing Our Call session held in Esopus from November 11 through November 13. After Sharing Our Call, Pau met with the administrative team at Marist-Bayonne: Bob Slaski, Steve Schlitte, Alice Miesnik, and Craig Carbone. From Bayonne, Pau traveled to Miami to meet with laypeople and brothers at Christopher Columbus and St. Brendan’s. After Miami, Pau met with laypeople and brothers at Roselle Catholic.

Pau did get the opportunity to meet with the Provincial Council at their November meeting, and at that time he shared some of his experiences in his recent tenure as head of the Bureau of the Laity. Pau commented on the recent meetings in Les Avellanes (Spain) in May and Mendes (Brazil) in September. Both meeting focused on the complementary vocations of vowed and lay Marist and their common mission of Marist Education.
