Visit from the General Council to Arco Norte

13/05/2005: Guatemala

After three and a half years visiting the different regions of the Institute, the General Council has finished the first cycle of visits (Africa, October 2002; Asia, February 2003; Brazil and Cono Sur, May 2003; Europe, November 2003; Oceania, May 2004; North America, November 2004) with the Provinces that compose the Arco Norte: América Central, México Central, México Occidental and Norandina.
As we have already noted, the planning meetings of the teams of visitors took place from the 15th February until the 17th February at Los Teques (Venezuela). The visits began immediately afterwards, and lasted until the 8th May. Brothers Luis Sobrado and Peter Rodney visited the Province of América Central; Brothers Théoneste Kalisa and Emili Turú, the Provinces of Mexico; Brothers Maurice Berquet and Pedro Herreros, the Province of Norandina. As they had done in other regions, Brothers Antonio Ramalho and Ernesto Sánchez visited the Houses of Formation in the whole region.
The teams of visitors used the days from the 9th until the 11th May to prepare the corresponding reports for each of the Provinces, as well as to plan the meetings of the extended General Council (the General Council plus the Provincial Councils of the region).
Taking advantage of the presence of the General Council in the City of Guatemala, the metropolitan archbishop, Cardinal Rodolfo Quezada Toruño, a former Marist student, visited the Brothers of the Council on the 9th May and shared some time with them.
