Kiribati Stewardship Team

The Kiribati’s Stewardship Team is setting out on its next two-year mandate of taking co-responsibility for the future Champagnat Marist Mission in Kiribati. Last 15th August, during the Assumption Day Gathering, the Team received a blessing from the gathered Champagnat Marists.

During the gathering the Stewardship Team shared its more immediate priorities for action which include planning an Ecological Retreat in mid-September for the Team itself and invited key teachers from St Louis and the pre-schools.

Another priority is an urgently needed response to a growing number of youth affected by substance abuse issues arising from local drugs and alcohol. Fortunately, for both priorities, the group have the willing availability of some local competent and professionally trained people.

The second retreat for St Louis Students affected by substance abuse issues was hold at La Valla over the weekend 22-23 August: Brother Tainga, with the St Louis Principal and other invited presenters, organized this retreat. Plans for a Child Safeguarding Workshop are also underway.
