Brother Deivis Alexander Fischer, son of Lauri and Kelly Cerutti Fischer, was born on September 15, 1983 in Barros-RS (Brazil). My Marist formation began in the year 2000, in Lajeado-RS, where I made the Juniorate.  I was Postulant in Bento Gonçalves and the Novitiate in Passo Fundo, ‘gaucho’ cities.  My definitive consecration was in my home country on October 16, 2011.

I studied Theology, Pastoral Ministry (ITEPA, Passo Fundo) and Philosophy (UNISC, Santa Cruz do Sul). I specialized in Sociology and I have a Master’s degree in education from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS, Porto Alegre).

At present I am Vice Provincial of the Marist Province of Brazil Sul-Amazonia and President of the Council of the Marist Union of Brazil (UMBRASIL).  Among the apostolic activities carried out in the past, I would like to highlight that of Vice Provincial of the Marist Province Rio Grande do Sul , from 2013 to 2015; that of President of the Coordination of Consecrated Life and Laity (VCL), in the year 2015; that of President of the Coordination of Pastoral Ministry in 2013, and that of Provincial Coordinator of  Marist Youth Pastoral Ministry (PJM) from 2008 to 2010.
