Dear Brothers;

 

Greetings of peace and joy to all of you!

 

The current triennium of our St. Francis of Assisi Province will expire in the month of April 2020. Therefore, after having obtained the required permission from the General Minister and his Council (Const. no. 129, 2) and with the consent of the Provincial Council I do hereby announce and convoke the Ordinary Provincial Chapter of our province to be held at St. Antony’s Friary, Tillery, Quilon from April 13 to 17, 2020. The friars shall elect a Provincial Minister and Council during this chapter and review the life and activity of the province.

 

Rev. Br. Kilian Ngitir OFM Cap, General Councilor, will preside over the Chapter.

 

All the brothers in perpetual vows who have the right to vote are bound to attend the Chapter. Anyone prevented from attending must report the impediment to the Provincial Minister whose responsibility it is to judge the matter . . . (Const. no. 130, 3).

 

Let us transform these days of Chapter as time of Grace and Blessings and let’s also earnestly pray for the successful celebration of the Chapter.

 

Yours Fraternally

Bro. Joseph P.S OFM Cap

Provincial Minister.
