Appointments of the General Council

09/10/2006: General House

The General Council held an ordinary meeting in Rome on the 8th September 2006 during which it appointed Brother Teófilo R. Minga (Compostela) as the Executive Secretary of the Religious Life Commission. Brother Teófilo R. Minga had just started the orientation course at Davao with the group of volunteers who are participating in the “Mission Ad Gentes” project when the superiors decided to ask him to take on this new service in the Institute. He will go to Rome from Davao to assume his new responsibility of institutional animation.
We have now secured all the personnel for the new Commissions that the General Council re-organized at their January meetings. The objective of the reorganization was to improve communication and to foster exchange of ideas.
The three current Commissions are:
The Religious Life Commission: The members of the Commission are Brothers Théoneste Kalisa, Antonio Ramalho, Peter Rodney (Chair), Ernesto Sánchez Barba (Director, Bureau of Vocations), and Teófilo R. Minga as the Executive Secretary.
The Mission Commission: Commission members include Brothers Pau Fornells (Director of the Bureau of the Laity), Pedro Herreros, Juan Miguel Anaya (Executive Secretary), Brother César Henriquez, (member of the Bureau of Solidarity and our representative with Franciscans International and Emili Turú (Chair).
Evangelical Use of Good Commission: the following members: Brothers Maurice Berquet (Chair), Antonio Martínez, Guy Palandre, and Dominick Pujia (Director of the Bureau of Solidarity), Brother Pedro Ost (Director of the Bureau of Evangelical Use of Goods).
The four Bureaus are the following:
Vocations: Brother Ernesto Sánchez (México Occidental)
Laity: Brother Pau Fornells (Norandina)
Evangelical Use of Goods: Brother Pedro Ost (Rio Grande do Sul)
BIS: Dominick Pujia (United States of America)
In this same meeting of the General Council, a few changes in personnel who collaborate in the General Administration were decided. Brother Gilles Beauregard, from the Province of Canada, who was responsible for the translations into French for three years, as well as the co-ordination of all the translators collaborating with the Secretary General, decided to achieve his “African dream” and he is returning to Kenya. Brother Gilles knows Africa very well as he has worked there for many years.
The translation service for the French language, carried out by Brother Gilles, has been entrusted to Brother Fabricio Galiana, from the Province of Compostela, who is currently working in Miraflores (Burgos). He will come to Rome as soon as he has finished the work that he has already undertaken.
The community of the General Administration appreciates the service given by Brother Gilles for the entire Institute with an admirable efficiency and we wish him all the best in his work in Africa. At the same time we celebrate the appointments of Brothers Teófilo and Fabricio whom we hope to have with us very soon.
