Information from the General Council – April 10, 2018

The General Council met to reflect on the path that is needed as a result of Fr. Heiner Wilmer's appointment as bishop. A reflective, responsive atmosphere characterized the meeting. First steps have been taken to make choices that can help everyone live in communion at this time.

In recent days, experts from the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life have been contacted, and canonists have been consulted so we can develop a clear picture of the framework within which to proceed. Many aspects need to be addressed, and it is the common will that decisions be made that are good for all.

We proceed, therefore, towards the convening of an ordinary General Chapter, which must be held within six months. In the coming days we will be more precise in offering dates and times of action. We still have some formalities to resolve in order to proceed appropriately in the preparation of what awaits us.
