Br Peter Gerard Carroll named for a second mandate of three years

25/04/2018: Australia

The General Council, after studying the consultation carried out in the Province has named Br. Peter Gerard Carroll as Provincial of Australia for a second mandate of three years.

In his letter to the Brothers of the Province from 20 April, Br. Ernesto Sánchez, Superior General, thanked Br. Peter “for his openness and availability to continue serving the Institute as Provincial.” And continued: “The result of the consultation proves clearly that he enjoys great support from the Brothers of the Province”.

Br. Peter will begin his second three-year mandate starting on 23 September of this year, date on which the Provincial Chapter will begin.

Brother Peter Carroll's profile

I was born in 1958 and raised in Bundaberg and Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. I was the middle of three children; my older sister died in 1979 and my younger sister lives with her husband and two sons in Brisbane.

After completing my secondary schooling at Marist College Ashgrove I commenced the Postulancy in 1977 and entered the Novitiate in 1978. I took first vows in January 1980 and made Final Profession in 1986.

During the post-Novitiate period I completed studies at Macquarie University and post-graduate studies at what is today the Australian Catholic University.

From 1984 to 2012 my ministry was exclusively in secondary school education. I specialised in Religious Education and led these departments in three schools. I then moved into school leadership and spent 15 years as Principal of three Colleges: one in Queensland and two in New South Wales.

I was first elected to the Provincial Council of the former Sydney Province in 2003, elected to the Provincial Council of the Australian Province when it was formed in 2012 and appointed by Br Jeffrey Crowe as his Deputy Provincial at the same time.

I was first appointed as provincial of Australia for a period of three years on Jan. 15, 2015.

The good Lord has blessed me in many ways: having truly admirable parents, being raised in a loving home with supportive family, being called to the Marist way, being given so many opportunities over the past years.
