Pre-Chapter Commissions



The capitulants proceed with their work programmes

01/06/2009: General House

The brother capitulants have embarked on some programmes of work to push forward the tasks they intend to accomplish during the General Chapter. The reserved area of the web, to which they alone have access, permits them to exchange messages, opinions, and documents. The members of the Preparatory Commission are responsible for making the work proposals and co-ordinating the persons. At this time, three pre-chapter commissions have been set up, each with its respective work programme.

The first will work on models of animation and government, and is composed of Brothers Peter Rodney (co-ordinator), Antonio Giménez (Mediterrenea), Josep María Soteras (LHermitage), Maurice Taildemann (Europe Center West), John Klein (USA), Claudino Falchetto (Brasil Central-North), Demetrio Espinosa (Southern Cross), Lawrence Ndawala (Southern Africa), Michael De Waas (Mission ad gentes), Jeff Crowe (Sydney). The commission anticipates working basically by Internet, without the need of moving from their usual places of residence.

The second commission which has begun its work is going to focus on the finances of the Institute and of the Administrative Units. It is composed of Brothers Maurice Berquet (co-ordinator), Julián Casey (Melbourne), Manny De Leon (East Asia), Nicholas Banda (Southern Africa) and Victor Preciado (Econome General). This commission anticipates meeting in Rome from 9 to 12 June 2009 to share in common the results of their work.

And finally, a third group of brother capitulants has been set up for the revision of the Constitutions and Statutes. Those forming part of this commission are Brothers Antonio Ramalho (co-ordinator), Juan Miguel Anaya (Mediterranea), Antoine Kazindu (Center East Africa), Eduardo Navarro (Western Mexico) and Robert Teoh (East Asia). The agenda of this commission envisages a meeting in Rome from 24 to 29 August.
