Revision of the Constitutions



Provinces & districts asked to answer the 1st part of the consultation

27/09/2016: General House

The Commission for the Revision of the Constitutions is asking provinces and districts to email an opinion of the first part of the consultation form of the first draft to const@fms.it by Sept. 30 if they have not had time to complete it.

“If it is not possible for someone to participate in the whole consultation, we ask them to at least send us the answer of the first part, regarding general aspects, the structure, the format, etc,” stated the Commission in a message sent to provincials and district superiors on Sept. 26. “This alone would help us a lot.”

“We are interested in having the máximum participation and answers, especially on the first part of the consulation, even if no contributions are made on the articles of this first draft,” affirmed Brother Josep M. Soteras, coordinator of the Commission.

Moving towards the General Chapter

After the consultation form of the first draft of the constitutions is sent back by September, the General Chapter Commission will sent out a chapter consultation to be worked on between October 2016 and January 2017.

The consultation of the second draft of the constitutions will then be sent for provinces and districts to work on between February and June 2017.

The Constitutions’ Commission will then prepare a third draft from July to August 2017, which will be presented at the 22nd General Chapter.

The Commission’s members are Brothers Tony Clark, Eduardo Navarro, Albert Nzabonaliba, Antonio Peralta, Josep M. Soteras and Sebastião Ferrarini.
