New Provincial of the United States

13/01/2015: United States

On December 19, 2014, Br. Ben Consigli, Current Provincial of the United States, announced that Br. Emili Turú, Superior General, together with the General Council, has confirmed the election of Br. Patrick McNamara as the next Superior of the Province.

In a letter sent to the Province of the United States, Br. Emili states: “I am grateful to Patrick for his availability and willingness to serve in this capacity. The results of your Discernment Process clearly indicate that Patrick has the strong support of the brothers in the Province, and your confidence and trust in him will serve as an important source of support throughout his term of leadership”.

At the same time, the Superior General thanks Br. Ben Consigli, Current Provincial, for his service to the Province, the Institute, and the General Council.

Presently, Br. Patrick is part of the FMSI-Geneva team and a member of the Marist community in Prévessin-Moëns, France. He will take over from Br. Ben Consigli during the next Provincial Chapter, which is scheduled for June 2015.

Br. Patrick was Provincial of Poughkeepsie (now USA Province) from 1994 to 2000. He began to follow Marcellin’s way in 1973, and has enjoyed living in the Marist community carrying out the mission of Christian education of young people and poor children through different services in the United States, and working in the defense of the rights of children through FMSI Geneva.
