Strengthening the mission and charisma of Champagnat



Meeting of bursars of the América Sur region

01/06/2018: Brazil

From May 19 – 22, Brothers, advisors and representatives who work in the Marist Union of Brazil (Umbrasil) and in the administrations of the five provinces that make up the América Surregion gathered in Porto Alegre.

The event had the objective of providing the distribution of good practices and formation among the participants, in line with the proposal to strengthen the regional identity and the integration of the Marist units in the continent.

The meeting was initiated by the provincial of Brazil Sul-Amazônia, Brother Inácio Etges, who touched on his speech points of the XXII General Chapter and opened a debate on challenges for brothers and laity. During this time, points were addressed such as the evangelical use of goods and the responsibility of the bursars as guardians of the patrimony and of the Marist mission.

In the sequence, the participants presented the status of two of the projects carried out by the network of bursars: the economy of scale and the domus system.

According to the coordinator of the network of bursars of the América Sur region, Brother Renato Augusto da Silva, the event is very important to create indicators and tools that can help in making decisions.

“In each meeting, we create, prepare and resume what has been projected throughout the last two years. The meetings hope to achieve conquests for the entire region, from an economic, financial and mission point of view,” explained the bursar of the Brasil Centro-Norte Province.
