The province of Compostela celebrates its fifth chapter

30/03/2016: Spain

The new provincial of Compostela took up office at the fifth provincial chapter held from March 20 – 22 in Valladolid, Spain, during which a new council was also elected.

The vicar general, Br Joe McKee, took part in the encounter, representing the Institute's general government. 

Aside from the capitulants, many lay people were invited to attend the first two days of the meeting.

The members of the new council – Brothers Eduardo Montenegro, Lisardo García, Máximo Blanco, Salvador Hidalgo, Teodorino Aller and António Leal – were elected as Brother Tomás Briongos took up his post as provincial.

Br Tomás is substituting Brother Oscar Martín Vicario, who has served as provincial since January 2010.

Brother António Leal was initially chosen as provincial back in October, but he resigned due to health reasons.

Under the theme ‘Being Marist,’ the encounter began with a Eucharistic celebration in which over 100 brothers from the province’s different communities took part. 

The chapter’s participants discussed the aims for the province during the next three years.

According to the Constitutions and Statues, the provincial chapter “has a consultative role when it examines general matters concerning the Province.”

“Taking into account the Province’s situation, the calls of the local Church and the directives of the General Chapter, the Provincial Chapter suggests the main orientations to be followed” (Constitutions and Statutes 151,2).
