Meeting of the International Patrimony Commission

15/07/2009: General House - Photo gallery

The International Patrimony Commission met in Rome from 22 to 26 June 2009. Brothers André Lanfrey (Co-ordinator), Aureliano Brambila, Robert Teoh, Michael Green, Ivo Strobino, Jaume Parés and Henri Réocreux (Secretary) completed an interesting work programme.

The Consultative Committee of the Patrimony, made up of Brothers Pedro Herreros, Antonio Ramalho, Peter Rodney and Théoneste Kalisa of the General Council joined the Commission in reviewing the contents of Appendix 8 of the Report the Council has prepared for presentation to the Chapter, in which the Commission’s activities are described. The contents of the report pick up from the balance sheet composed by the Commission in its meeting of the year past.

Among the works of the Commission was included a colloquium on Marist themes of interest to the researchers of the four Marist branches. On this occasion, Father Aloïs Greiler and Brother André Lanfrey, with the help of Brother Pedro Herreros, had organized a programme for the day on the topic “What is your understanding of the Society of Mary?” Contributors to this colloquium were André Lanfrey fms, Myra Niland sm, Aloïs Greiler sm, and Mary Emerentiana smsm. Eight members of the other Marist branches took part, with the Marianist Tim Phillips and a group of Brothers interested in the subject. The contributions will be published in “Marist Notebooks” No. 28.

The work programme also included a report on the Marist formation at a distance Project developed by the Marist University of Curitiba to be offered to Marist universities. Brothers Michael Green, André Lanfrey, Clemente Juliatto, Antoni Torrelles, Afonso Murad and Professor Ricardo Tescarolo have been working on developing work and study material for this Project.

Among the requests presented by the Commission to the General Council were: to improve the presentation of the “Marist Notebooks” with an editorial, a note on the authors of the articles and a more attractive cover; to extend the publication of historical sources (Brothers François and Jean-Baptiste); to improve the data base of CEPAM; to create a new collection of books for bringing together important works of scientific research; and to set up a Patrimony Centre in Nairobi.

In anticipation of the second century of the foundation of the Institute (2017), a project is envisaged of a two volume History of the Institute, destined for the general public, which includes the general history and the individual histories of the provinces or regions. A new edition of the “Chronologie mariste”, revised and updated, will also be published as a help in this work.
