Marists of Asia gathered for their first regional assembly from Dec. 12 – 16 in Negombo, Sri Lanka.

“This was a wonderful opportunity for the participants to get an experience of Marists in Asia and broaden their perspectives of belonging to a bigger Marist family,” said general councillor Brother Michael De Waas.

There were around 50 Brothers and laity, including the two Provincials of East Asia and South Asia, Brothers Robert Teoh and Shanthi Liyanage respectively, and the District Superior of the Marist District of Asia, Brother Juan Castro. 

Brother Chris Wills of the Collaboration for Mission, International, Brother João Carlos do Prado of the secretariat of mission, and Br Michael participated on behalf of the general administration.

“This was a follow up meeting of the Mission Assembly that took place in Nairobi for the Asia region,” Br Michael told the general house press office on Dec. 17. “How to be prophets and mystics in communion was one of the topics they discussed during this assembly.”

Brothers Willy Lubrico, Sunanda Alwis and Paul Bhatti who were participants of the Mission Assembly in Nairobi, were responsible in organising this regional assembly.

A document with concluding remarks is being elaborated and will be published soon.

To watch the message of superior general Brother Emili Turú sent to the participants, see below.
