Leadership

in a change of era


The members of Faith and Praxis are convinced that we are not living an era of change, but a change of era. We are aware that we are witnessing the end of an era, and we want to actively collaborate in the birth of a new civilisation, characterised by the culture of encounter and dialogue. 

With Margaret Wheatley, we believe that there is no more important task than "consciously choosing who we want to be as leaders for this time. We must understand the time in which we live, focus our energies on what is possible, and step forward willingly to serve the human spirit."

Our journey



Faith and Praxis was founded by Sr Christine Anderson, fcJ and the Society of Faithful Companions of Jesus in 2011, building on the work Sr Christine had developed over many years, particularly since the International Congress on Consecrated Life Passion for Christ, Passion for Humanity, held in Rome in November 2004. 

Sr Christine and her team brought her vision to life both through formation programmes and through advice to congregations and other organisations. They worked with both leaders and members to enable their organisations to fully engage all their potential for apostolic ministry in the 21st century.

In January 2019 the Faith and Praxis project came under the responsibility of the Marist Brothers, who appointed Br Emili Turú as Director.
