3rd St. Matthew Provincial Chapter Update 5. Day 4, October 18


Today is the feast day of St. Luke, one of the Evangelists of the Rogate. The day started with the Holy Mass presided over by Fr. Rene Ramirez, Superior of the Community in Melbourne, Australia. Fr. Al John Provido, Formator of the Postulants, delivered the homily. At the end of the Mass, the Assembly prayed for Fr. Provido and Bro. Christian Allan De Sagun who are celebrating their birthday.


The morning session began with the presentation given by Fr. Ezpeleta of the goals of the XIII General Chapter to be considered when the sector groups meet for discussion. The rest of the morning was dedicated to commission groups to formulate three priorities for the new Provincial Government to consider in its action plan in the next four years. The commissions are: 1. Government, 2. Religious Life, Formation and Vocation Ministry, 3. Rogate, 4. Parishes, Laity, and Youth Ministry, 5. Charity and Mission, 6. Administration of Goods.


In the afternoon, the first three groups presented their proposals which were commented on and reformulated by the Assembly, and finally voted on. The Chapter members actively participated in their rich interventions.


The day closed with the prayer of the Vespers and the Holy Rosary at the Chapel of St. Anthony in the Boys Village. Dinner followed at the refectory of the village with Capitulars sharing the meal with the educational community of the St. Anthony’s Boys Village.
