Fr John Larsen elected Superior-General

From Nemi, Italy, comes the news that Fr John Larsen SM has become the 14th Superior-General of the Society of Mary. After days of prayer and discernment, the Marist Fathers' General Chapter members cast their votes on Sep 30.

NZ-born Fr John succeeds retiring Superior-General, Fr John Hannan, and brings extensive experience from mission work in Asia and recent leadership of the international theologate, Rome.

In coming days elections will continue to elect four assistants for the new General.

Congratulations, Fr John! Our prayers go with you.
