VIE - District Chapter

District Chapter-2

 Vietnam District Chapter

Starting on October 7 to October 9, 2014, Vietnam District held its first Assembly Chapter in preparation for the General Chapter. 11 members of the district, in perpetual vows, were able to attend it. Besides that, 3 invited guests also attended: Fr. Paulus Sugino, General Councilor for Asia, Fr. Francis Pupkowski, Regional Superior of the Philippines, and Bro. Nguyen Van Bat, the representative of the scholastics in temporary vows.

Fr. Rino Venturin, the superior of the District, in his introduction to the Chapter invited the members of the Chapter to take a look at the history of the SCJ presence in Vietnam, its purpose and goals, the present dynamism and progress, and the challenges for the future. The assembly chapter went on very well and smoothly. All topics in the agenda could be tackled and we could even finish the chapter ahead of the planned schedule. The chapter came up with some significant resolutions that will orient the District Council in the preparation of the 6-year plan and the consequent operational programs.
