United we are both bridge and lighthouse

From the 3rd to the 7th of December 2018, more than 70 Brothers, members of the laity and young people from the Province of Brazil Sul-Amazônia gathered in Veranópolis, Rio Grande do Sul, to share, to meditate and to make key decisions, such as the election of the Provincial Councillors.

Two priorities were defined for the next 3 years: "Our vocation as a Brother" and "Mission". The first one had as its aim the reinforcement of the Brother's identity in the light of apostolic and Marian spirituality, from an ecological perspective, in fraternal and revitalized communities. The second, concerning our Marist Laity, had as its objective the invigoration of our Catholic and Marist identity to generate life in the areas of mission.

In the course of the meeting, Brother Inacio Etges was re-elected and will direct the Province for a second period of three years. Five Councillors were also elected to accompany Brother Inacio in the animation of the Province until the year 2021: Brothers Deivis Alexandre Fischer, Manuir José Mentges, Odilmar José Civa Fachi, Onorino Moresco and Sandro André Bobrzyk.


The General Councillors, Brothers Óscar Martin and Sylvain Ramandimbiarisoa, were there to represent the General Council. Brother Ernesto Sánchez, Superior General, sent a message by video.


Shaping the future with openness to the new...
