26/07/2008: General House

In his report to the General Administration, Brother Michel Flanigan gave a rapid presentation of the current state of the missionary brothers in Asia.

First of all he spoke of his steps in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, and Thailand, and in other two countries that it is best not to mention, where the chance of establishing a community of brothers was examined.

A total of 58 brothers were prepared in Davao in 2007, 43 of them were sent to the following Asian countries: Bangladesh (7), Cambodia (6), India (7), Korea (2), Thailand (3), Canada (5), others (7 + 6). Four brothers were sent to other continents. The brothers who were sent to missions in Asia formed a new administrative structure depending from the General Council, called “Mission ad gentes Department”. This department includes India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Cambodia and two other countries. It counts 43 brothers who gathered in July for their first common retreat to share their experiences.

Before the end of his mandate, Brother Sean Sammon, the Superior General, means to send other two groups of brothers to Davao, one of 7 brothers, which has concluded its linguistic preparation in Chicago, and the other of 13 brothers.
