XIX Provincial Chapter of México Occidental



One heart, one spirit

02/08/2018: Mexico

The Chapter of México Occidental was held on July 27 and 28 in Guadalajara, Mexico, straight after the closure of the Provincial Assembly, which began on July 23.

The Chapter counted on the participation of 69 brothers – including Brothers Ernesto Sánchez (superior general) and João Carlos do Prado, general councillor – two priests and five lay people.

During the two days, the Chapter assumed the resolutions of the Assembly, installed the superior provincial, Brother Miguel Ángel Santos Villareal, for a second triennium and elected his Council.

Brother Miguel Ángel shared his report on the province’s last three years of animation and government. The report was structured into the topics of: the areas of vocation and Marist life, Marist educational mission and animation and government.

In their contributions, participants insisted on the importance of offering better accompaniment to the Marist life and mission in Haiti, to be professional when choosing managers, to take care of people's dignity in administrative processes, to take care of the future of the legacy of the Marist patrimony and the management of the goods of the province.

The participants also insisted on the importance of a defined profile of brothers; the need to have congruent, dialoguing, fraternal brothers, that are aware of the diverse provincial contexts and have a solid connection with God.

During the Chapter, the superior general invited the brothers to build a future with new dreams and illusions, underscoring the importance of involving everyone in this new beginning.

The new Provincial Council that was elected on July 28 is formed by Brothers Jesús Hernández, Luis Enrique Rodríguez, Víctor Preciado, Luis Roberto González, Agustín Acevedo and Melesio Tiscareño.

After the election, the Chapter received and ratified the working document of the Assembly, which contained the working route for the new Council.

Brother José Sánchez Bravo, Provincial of México Central and coordinator of the Arco Norte region, invited the brothers of México Occidental to continue working for peace, justice and the dignity of creation.
