Superior General Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, has announced the appointment of a new General Councilor. Brother Rafael Matas Roselló, FSC, will oversee the promotion of Lasallian vocations, particularly to the life of the Brothers, and the accompaniment of the various groups within the Lasallian family. He will also serve as an additional voice and presence on the General Council of a Brother from the Region of Europe and the Mediterranean (RELEM), the Region with the largest concentration of Brothers, many of them in their senior years. Prior to this appointment, Brother Rafael was serving in Haiti.
In December 2014, Brother Robert appointed Brother Gustavo Ramírez Barba, FSC, as a General Councilor to accompany Lasallian higher education.
The General Council now consists of eight Brothers, which includes the Vicar General. Together, they assist the Superior General in the government and animation of the Institute.
