Our General Superior: Brother Edward Driscoll

The General Superior has been elected: Brother Edward Driscoll.

Dear Brothers, Associates and friends,

I am very pleased to inform you that Brother Edward Driscoll was elected earlier this morning in Chapter to serve as the next General Superior for the Congregation. He was elected on the second ballot. Immediately after the election, the delegates stood to sing the Te Deum in thanksgiving for Brother Ed’s willingness to accept this call to leadership. As the delegates gathered for the midday meal later, Brother Dan Skala offered a toast on behalf of all of us. The Chapter will now proceed to the election of the Vicar and other members of the General Council. Please continue to keep us in your prayers, and please pray for Ed during this time of transition. An interview with Bro Ed will be posted on LivingTheCharism. Here is a link to that video: http://youtu.be/mjO_FcpaAm0

May the Spirit of God be poured forth upon Ed and the Congregation, as well as our Associates and Collaborators at this time.

Brother Lawrence Harvey, CFX

    Thank God For the Leadership of Ed Driscoll! He has proven many times throughout his life as a Xaverian Brother that he is capable of leading a group of people to form and carry out a vision that furthers the development of Catholic education and the ministry of evangelization!

    I pray for him and each brother that all will work together with the insights of the past and the challenges of the future to give new life and new meaning to what it means to be a Xaverian Brother!

    My friend Edward, may God grant you many blessings in this new ministry and never forget how to have a good time with your friends!

  2. Brother Ed:

    I believe you were at St. Joseph’s Juniorate in Peabody, Mass in 1955/1956. Me too. Clearly you persevered but I left after the year in Leonardtown. I remember our living in the Camp Calvert cabins, going to St. Mary’s grade school from 3PM to 8PM every day, going to the Xaverian College in Silver Spring for about two months, and then back to the Juniorate in Leonardtown. I also remember that we spent afternoons scrubbing down the pews that were brought from Peabody. I can still smell the ammonia.

    What more can I say.

    Well, I’ve been married 51 years, have 7 kids, 25 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild. Seems I started my own “Order, the Gormarians.”

    So, if my memory is right, and you are the Ed Driscoll from the Juniorate, sent me an email. I think I still have a picture album from Peabody.

    Were are you located? I’m on Bowie, MD.
