Members of the new General Council of the Marist Brothers

03/10/2009: General House

The General Council is made up of the Brother Vicar General and of the Brothers called Councillors General who are the immediate collaborators of the Brother Superior General in the government of the Institute. The term of office of the General Councillors lasts until the convocation of a new General Chapter at the end of eight years.

The 21st General Chapter has chosen as General Councillors Brothers: : Antonio Carlos Ramalho de Azevedo, (Brasil Centro-Norte), Ernesto Sánchez Barba (México Occidental), Eugène Kabanguka (Afrique Centre Est / Central East Africa), John Klein (United States of America), Josep Maria Soteras Pons (L'Hermitage), Michael De Wass (South Asia).

The whole Institute rejoices in the election of these immediate co-workers of the Superior General and his Vicar. In sharing this joy with the Brothers and with all who feel attached to the Institute through the Marist charism, we seek to thank God for the gift of service to authority which these Brothers have accepted. May Mary, our Good Mother and our first Superior, with Marcellin and all the Marist saints accompany them in the animation and government of the Institute in the coming years.

The Brothers elected to the Council provided a brief autobiography before the Chapter so as to introduce themselves to their fellow capitulants and to the Marist world. We hope to offer a more detailed biography of each as opportunity arises.
