Appointment of the Preparatory Commission

05/08/2007: General House

On the 25th of July, the General Council appointed the Preparatory Commission of the XXI General Chapter. The members of the Commission are: Graham Neist (Sydney province); Albert Nzabonaliba, (Central-East Africa province); João Carlos do Prado (Brasil Centro-Sul province); Lindley Sionosa (Philippines province); Josep Maria Soteras (L’Hermitage province); Carlos Vélez (Central America province); Maurice Berquet, General Councillor; Luis García Sobrado, Vicar General; Seán Sammon, Superior General.
In so doing, the General Council followed the Statutes of the General Chapter, article 2:
Two years before the opening of an ordinary General Chapter, the Brother Superior General, with his Council, appoints a Preparatory Commission (cf. C. 137.4.7). This Commission sees to all that is necessary for the Chapter to achieve its responsibilities in regard to C. 139.
The Commission collaborates with the General Administration in regard to personnel and material needs. It may request the General Council to set up pre-Chapter groups on topics.
After consulting the Administrative Units and capitulants, the Commission draws up a global plan for the work and the process of the Chapter, including a proposed closing date. The plan will be submitted to the Chapter Assembly for discussion and approval during the first days of the General Chapter.
