Chapter members gathered at Maris Stella College, Negombo, On August 18, to discerned in prayer about the future of the Province. The second Provincial Chapter solemnly started in the presence of Br. Joe Mc Kee, Vicar General, Bro. John Klein, Councilor General link for Asia and Oceania and Bro. Sunanda Alwis.
Br. Joe addressed the Brothers emphasizing the following issues:
1. Spirit of Discernment
2. Fraternal dialogue
3. Allow God’s spirit to speak to us, to each other, to the church and to the world (modern world.)

The outgoing Provincial Br. Sunanda presented on Energetic Marist Life and made a critique of what happened in the past 3 years. Most importantly installation of Br.
