New provincial of Cruz del Sur expresses a ‘heartfelt’ thanks



Cruz del Sur gets new provincial

24/07/2015: Argentina

The new provincial superior of Cruz del Sur expressed gratitude after the announcement made by the general superior.

“A heartfelt ‘thanks’ arises in me for the trust and affection they place in me,” said Brother Alberto Aparicio, the new provincial.

“It will not be easy task, but I have the support of my brothers and a chain of prayers, which so many friends that life has given me have committed to,” he told the general house press office in an interview on July 21.

The superior general, Brother Emili Turú, made the announcement in a letter written on July 20.

The new superior of the province Cruz del Sur, a province of the Marist brothers which includes the two Latin American countries, Argentina and Uruguay, and the District of Paraguay, will replace Brother Horacio Bustos on Nov. 1 during a jubilee celebration of brothers in Luján, Argentina.

“It (the celebration) will be a nice testimony that will strengthen this journey and that we can hopefully carry out as a single body,” affirmed Br Alberto.

In his letter, Br Emili expressed his sincere thanks to Br Horacio “who, for the last six years, has given the best of himself in the animation and government of the Province.”

According to Br Alberto, “the challenges will be, without a doubt, accompanying the brothers, listening to ghem, accomapanying them to live and enjoy the gift of consecration.” 

“And from the stance of the Marist mission - with so many committed lay people – this will mean enjoying the richness of the mission taking place in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay,” he remarked.
