Marianist Community | Marianist Educational Associates


Meeting on January 17, 2006, 7 to 8 P.M.

All Present: Val and Dave Coleman, Bro. Frank Damm, Grissel Benitez-Hodge, Mike
Fassiotto, Kay Stone, Bro. Jerry Bommer

Val provided us with a copy of an October 31st speech made by Archbishop J. Michael Miller, secretary of the Vatican Congregation for Catholic Education, on the challenges facing Catholic universities in America and Europe from a Vatican perspective.

It was decided to provide content to our future meetings by taking the six aspects of Marianist Community as presented at the June MEA Workshop in Dayton for study and reflection—one aspect for each meeting. Mike Fassiotto will find these aspects in his notes and communicate them to us.

We will look into the possibility of an MEA web page attached to the CUH web site. It could serve as a chat room.

We targeted the 2006 fall spiritual convocation as the time for the MEA members to make a public commitment to MEA.

We will begin to invite perspective MEA members to our meetings in sets of threes and fours: Peter Steiger, Mary Pat Sjostrom, Barbara Belle; Peggy Friedman, Yukio Ozaki, Margaret Mize; Julie Murphy, Corinne and Scott Schroeder, Curtis Washburn; Venus Ituralde, and Michelle Obra.

Next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 15th at the Marianist Hall:
5:45 P.M. Vespers
6:00 P.M, Dinner
6:45 P.M. Meeting
