Growing Committed Marists

31/03/2013: Australia

The Province of Australia has three teams that work in complementary ways to lead and to support the life and mission of Marists, both Brothers and Lay, across the Province:

* The Leadership Team for Marist Schools Australia
* The Formation Team, for Marist life and mission
* The Pastoral Team, for accompanying vocational Marists

The sixteen people involved in these teams (eight Brothers and eight Lay Marists) met in Sydney on 15 March for a strategic planning workshop, which was facilitated by Brother Graham Neist.

The purpose of the workshop was to develop a common understanding of the major directions of the Province, and a shared appreciation of the roles of each of the teams.  It was agreed that the major thrust of the Province in 2013 was “growing committed Marists”.  The day was spent in exploring what was meant by this term, and how each of the three teams could work together to realise it.

One of the main priorities for the Province at the present time is the development of a new structure for how Lay Marists and Brothers together can develop in communion with one another and co-responsibility for Marist life and ministry, as called for by the last General Chapter. It is hoped that something will be ready to share with the Provincials of other Provinces at the upcoming General Conference in September.
