Sunday the 18th of March elections to parish councils were held throughout the Diocese. For us here in Mariukirkjan we were to elect 4 members. We had a real election with 13 candidates to choose from – a number which I consider fantastic! And I’m proud that so many were willing to run. This expresses an active involvement in the parish.


The new parish council members are:

Sr.Marisa Cremona Spiteri (chairman)

Jón Hansen (vice-chairman)

Katrina (Kinn) Magnussen (secretary)

Jean Gudjónsson

plus two alternates:

Sharon Christiansen and Agnieszka Johannesen


Of the 224 eligible voters 56 voted, which is 25%. Even though the number of those, who voted was not large, still I consider it to be a goodly number, something for which we can be proud.


I extend my thanks to all the 13 candidates and also to the election committee consisting of Sr. Marisa, Kinn Magnussen and Christian Gabrielsen, who have done a very efficient and good piece of work.
