Chapter held in the Province of Compostela

07/01/2019: Spain

The VIth Chapter of the Province of Compostela took place from the 27th to the 30th of December in Valladolid. 23 Brothers and 10 lay people were also invited to take part. The motto of the meeting was "Give Life." 

On the first day, as well as the celebration of the "Day of the Province", Brother Tomás Briongos assumed the mandate of Provincial for a second period. 

Representing the General Government of the Institute were Brothers Ernesto Sánchez, Superior General, and João Carlos do Prado, General Councillor. 

December 28 was given over to listening and dialogue. The reports from several sectors of the Province were presented and the members of the General Government then presented the Strategic Plan of the General Council. 

On the third day the work was centred on defining the priorities that will guide the work of the Province during  the next three years. The work of the groups consisted in clarifying tendencies and selecting the priorities that will be published at a later date by the new Provincial Council. 

Next, the capitulants analyzed the proposals of the new provincial flowchart and other specific topics dealing with the life of the Brothers, such as the norms of the Province and the provincial economy. 

The feast of the Holy Family marked the last day of the Chapter. The Brothers who will help Brother Tomás in the provincial animation have been chosen: Máximo Blanco, Salvador Hidalgo, Lisardo García, Eduardo Montenegro, António Leal and Román Álvarez. 

The chapter concluded with Brother Ernesto inviting everyone to be new FMS, F for the global family, M for Mary and S for service.
