The Marist Institute inaugurated the new region of ‘América Sur’ during an encounter held in Florianopolis, Brazil, which established its governance and finance model.

The encounter, held from March 6 – 7 following five days of a meeting of the Extended General Council, also aimed at materializing the New Models Project and consolidating the region’s identity.  

The América Sur region was established after the two former regions, Brasil and Cono Sur, united. The new region is now formed by the provinces of Brasil Centro-Sul, Brasil Centro-Norte, Brasil Sul-Amazônia, Santa Maria de los Andes, Cruz del Sur and the district of Paraguay.

The superiors and their councils of these six administrative units took part in the assembly, as well as Luca Olivari of the general administration and Brother João Carlos do Prado, the director of the secretariat of mission.

The assembly presented the region’s strategic initiatives, which had been elaborated by an ad hoc group formed by two representatives of each Province: a brother and a lay person.

The ad hoc group, now called the ‘implementation team of the América Sur region,’ which includes new members selected by each province, is leading the region. 

Two provincials, a provincial titular and a substitute provincial, are also part of the team. The assembly appointed provincial of Cruz del Sur, Brother Alberto Aparicio, as provincial titular.
