Meeting of the Conference Presidents

The Presidents of the Conferences of the Order met at the General Curia in Rome from September 14 to 16, 2016, on the topic, Towards the General Chapter of 2018. After the opening greeting from the General Minister, the able presentation of the statistics by Br. Mark Schenk highlighted the growth and diminishment of the friars in the various areas of the Order. Over the three days, the Presidents and the General Council discussed various topics:

  • Fraternal collaboration between circumscriptions: where we are;
  • The Ratio formationis;
  • Guidelines on the protection of minors;
  • Questions regarding the International College;
  • Juridical questions;
  • The carrying out of PCO VIII;
  • Topics for the 2018 Chapter.

The principal purpose of the meeting was to confirm together with the Presidents how the General Minister and his Council had carried out the mandate of the last General Chapter and to ask the Conferences to formulate the subjects that they would like to see treated at the next General Chapter in 2018.
