35th General Chapter - Society of Mary

The capitulants concluded their official tasks of the day by choosing, according to the Manual of Procedures, Bro. Douglas A. Roper (PE) as president of the Coordinating Committee of the Chapter and Bro. Timothy Driscoll (ME) as secretary. Fr. Ignace Pagnan (TO) was chosen as the third member of the Coordinating Committee, which will guide and organize the good progress of the Chapter.
In the afternoon the capitulants came together to celebrate the Eucharist. United in the spirit of Mary, which Blessed Chaminade called the “spirit of the Institute”, the Brothers meditated on the message of the prophet Hosea: “I will allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak to her heart.” (Hos 2:16ff.) 

 Let us pray that the unity of the capitulants would be strengthened so that the spirit of the Society throughout the world would also grow stronger.
