General Government



As successor to the Founder, the Brother Superior General gathers all the Brothers of the Institute around Christ. He guides them and accompanies them in their fidelity to their commitment.

The Brother Vicar General is the closest collaborator of the Brother Superior General, replacing him in his absence, and when the Superior finds himself unable to carry out his task in whole or in part.

The General Council is made up of the Brother Vicar General and of Brothers called Councillors General, who, with the Brother Superior General, form a community.

The General Chapter decides on the number of General Councillors (at least four) whom it is to elect, and on the way they are to be elected. At the time of their election, they must be at least ten years perpetually professed.

Their term of office lasts from one ordinary General Chapter to the next, 8 years.
