Collaboration for Mission, International (Cmi)

 

Br. Valdícer Fachi replaces Br. Chris Wills in the General Administration

03/07/2018: General House

On July 3, after 6 years of working at the Secretariat Collaboration for the mission, international (Cmi), Brother Chris Wills returned to the Province of Australia. Brother Valdícer Fachi, from the Province of Brasil Sul-Amazônia, is the new director of the secretariat.

The secretariat was established in 2012 as a means of responding to the calls of the XXI General Chapter. Some of the proposals for action from the Chapter were:

  • To establish international and interprovincial communities which will be open to Marist Brothers and Lay Marists and serve in the vanguard of new areas of mission.
  • To strengthen the further development of Mission Ad Gentes in Asia, and open it out to other areas where a need is discerned.
  • To establish a Marist volunteer service in support of our mission, whose members are available to work in our ministries in need or to be mobilized for emergencies.

Responsibility for these and a fourth one - the development of greater international consciousness among Marists (Lay and Brother) - was delegated to CMI and its leader, Br Chris.

The Cmi has been critically involved in key Institute developments during his period in Rome: the establishment of the Fratelli Project, the development of the Lavalla200> International Communities and Formation programme, the management of international volunteering, to name just a few.

The key action word in the Secretariat’s name (“Collaboration”) highlights the centrality of relationships in all that is its responsibility. Br. Chris has spent much time developing these collaborative relationships - with other Secretariats, Provinces, Districts, Marist laymen and women and Brothers, other Congregations and International Agencies.

On his return to Australia, Br. Chris joined the Westmead community.
