Last October, four Marist priests (pictured above) began studying for a Licentiate in Rome. Frs David Sánchez (Mexico) and Arnaldo Da Silva (Brazil) are studying formation and Fr Kosema Masei (Futuna) is studying Missiology at the Gregorian University. Fr Kevin Medilo (Philippines) is majoring in Interreligious Dialogue at the Angelicum University.


On 8 December last year nineteen martyrs who were killed in the 1990s were beatified in Algeria. Among them was Marist Brother Henri Vergès FMS. Brother Henri went to Algeria in 1969, where he led a life of intense prayer and of profound dialogue with his Muslim friends. Along with other religious present in the country, he lived in close solidarity with the Algerian people. He was killed in 1994 by two fundamentalists.
