Tell us about yourself

I am Brother Jean Marie BATICK and I belong to the
District of Melanesia which includes Papua New
Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia.
I was professed as a Marist Brother in November 1998
at the Pacific Novitiate in Lomeri, Fiji. My scholastic
was done at the Marist Asia Pacific Centre (MAPAC) in the Philippines. My Country of origin is Vanuatu. Currently I am in charge of the Laumanasa Formation House as postulant master, in the Solomon Islands. I am also a member of the District of Melanesia Council.

 

What does it mean for you to be a brother today?

Being a brother today, for me, is all about committing oneself to a call of service and to the call to live my vocation as a Marist consecrated religious. And to live fully and joyously my life regardless of the challenges that the call will bring. To be available and present sensitively to the calls of those with whom I live and work.
