Visit of Brothers Libardo Garzón and Carlos Alberto Rojas

30/08/2019: Papua New Guinea

From 5th to 16th August, Brothers Libardo Garzón, General Bursar, and Carlos Alberto Rojas, Director of the Secretariat for Education and Evangelization, visited the District of Melanesia, which includes New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.

It was an opportunity for them to experience how the Marists do mission in this part of the Institute and mostly to know the realities of where the ministries are and look like. As they themselves experienced and saw with they own eyes that doing mission in Melanesia can be very difficult and very challenging, as you never know what will happen when you travel from one part of the District to the other.

Unfortunately, due to their tight schedule, they only visited three communities and ministries. In the Solomon Islands, they visited Laumanasa Community and St Joseph‟s Catholic Secondary School, in Tenaru. Then in Papua New Guinea, they visited Port Moresby Community where they attend the Extended District Council meeting. And in Bougainville they visited the Brothers community and St Joseph‟s College Mabiri.

They really appreciated the warm welcome that they receive in the three areas that they visited. The hospitality of everyone, Brothers, Lay Marists and the students touched them very much.
