Lay Marist Council Meeting
October 22, 2022
The Lay Marist Council held their bi-annual in-person meeting on Saturday, October 22nd at the Marist Brothers Center at Esopus. Lindsay Irwin (TX), Peter Marti (FL), and Erin Kelly (IL) flew in on Friday and made their way up to the center, while Earline Tweedie and Br Ken Hogan drove down from Lawrence, MA.
The locals – Matt Fallon, Br. Owen Ormsby, Richard Karsten, and Maureen Hagan – also were in attendance. Ellen Salmi (KY) joined via Zoom, as she is home caring for her newborn son, Emmanuel (congratulations Ellen, Josh, and Joy!).
The Council flushed out details of the third formation cohort, which will begin in January 2023. Also on the agenda was planning for a 2nd Lay Assembly next summer, structures and finances, reports on summer service projects, and plans for more service opportunities. The group also had a chance to get input on these plans from USA Provincial Br. Dan O’Riordan.
The Council will continue to meet every other week via Zoom until the spring in-person meeting. Thoughts, suggestions and comments can be directed to Maureen Hagan, firstname.lastname@example.org.
