Pat Devlin, SM, the District Superior of the Marist Fathers in Asia attended the Council of the Society along with the members of the General Administration and the Provincial Superiors of the different units of the Marist Fathers all over the world. This meeting happens after 4 years since the last General Chapter in 2009. The purpose is to review what had happened in the last 4 yours and to look ahead for the next 4 years what is best, fruitful and effective for the life and mission of the Society of Mary.
