22nd General Chapter: Preparations begin in Rionegro

Some participants and members of the support team are already working in Rionegro to prepare for the opening of the General Chapter on Sept. 8.

Two lay people, Priscila Staniski and Laercio da Cruz Loureiro (Brasil Centro-Sul Province) of the technology team, are already in Colombia since Aug. 21. Agapito Gómez and Brother Orlando Escobar, of the Norandina Province, arrived on that same day. 

Other members of the support team, who are in charge of preparing the “Casa de Encuentros de La Salle” will soon arrive to welcome the participants.

The Provisional Committee of the General Chapter

The Provisional Committee of the General Chapter begin its work on Aug. 31.

As indicated in the Statutes of the General Chapter, this team will be in charge of establishing and coordinating the programme of the Chapter’s first days.

The Committee was appointed by the General Council last February and is made up of Brothers Joe McKee (coordinator), Ben Consigli, Raja Kumar Soosai, Juan Carlos Fuertes, Darren Burge, Michel Razafimandimby, Deivis Fisher and Ernesto Sánchez.
The work of the Provisional Committee will last until the capitulants choose the members of the Facilitating Commission of the Chapter, which will be responsible for the organisation and development of the Chapter.
