The Star of the Sea Province – Navigating New Waters Together

The new “Star of the Sea” Province will be inaugurated on 8 December 2022, during its first Chapter, that will be hold in Mittagong, Australia, from 8 to 15 December 2022.

On 10 May 2021, Br. Ernesto, Superior General, communicated to the brothers of the Province of Australia and District of the Pacific that, from 8 December 2022, the two Administrative Units will be the Marist Brothers Star of the Sea Province. Br. Peter Carroll was appointed as first Provincial of the new Administrative Unity.

The theme selected for the Chapter is Navigating New Waters Together. Appropriately, it uses nautical imagery and emphasises the necessity of working together to chart a way forward into the future.

In recent months, the Steering Committee has met regularly and there have been three meetings of Delegates. Others are planned prior to the Chapter.

The Delegates meetings have been focussed on becoming familiar with one another so that there is a real sense of fraternity at the Chapter, and the third task above: identifying the key priorities for the first three years of the Province and suggesting ways in which these issues can be effectively addressed and promoted.

“Brothers and Marist Friends, please pray for our new Marist Family in the Asia-Pacific area. It is first and foremost a family of faith. It’s development and future will be dependent on the faith of its members, its shared fraternity and strong commitment to Marist service.”, said Br Peter Carroll on the Star Messenger newsletter, edition 6.
