Provincial of Southen Africa

25/06/2019: South Africa

After studying the results of the consultation taken place in the province, the General Council appointed Brother Norbert Mwila as superior of the Province of Southen Africa for a second term of three years.

In the letter sent to the Brothers of the Province on June 18, our Superior General, Brother Ernesto Sánchez, thanked Brother Norbert for generously accepting to continue serving the Institute as provincial: "Thanks for your presence and closeness to people, and for your devotedness in serving the Brothers and Lay people with pastoral care", the Brother Ernesto emphasised. 

Brother Norbert will assume his second term from October 28 2019, at the beginning of the provincial chapter. 

 

Br. Norbert 

He first encountered the Marist Brothers as a teenager, when he met Brother José Grande.  

After graduating from high school, Br Norbert became a postulant at St Paul's community in Kabwe in 1991.  

He became a novice later that year at Kutama, Zimbabwe, and made his first profession in 1993. He then continued his formation at the Marist International Centre, or MIC, in Nairobi until 1996.  

Br Norbert went on to teach primary and secondary school at St Paul's and was appointed as head teacher of the new primary school in the same community in 1998, where served for seven years. 

He recalls his mother, who passed away the year before his final profession in 2000, as being "among the most significant and encouraging figures" in his Marist vocation. 

In 2001, Br Norbert was appointed community superior of St Paul's, followed an 11 month course for formators in Nairobi in 2005 and in 2006 he served as Master of postulants at Mtendere, a large village in Malawi, for 3 months. 

In 2007 he was appointed master of novices in Matola, Mozambique, where he remained until he was appointed provincial, in 2016. It should be mentioned that, in 2013,he was appointed as a member of the International Commission of Brothers Today.
