Wednesday, October 5

The Chapter Assembly began in the morning by listening to and commenting on the reports of the three workshops held yesterday afternoon. These dealt with the three words of the Chapter theme: Pilgrims (Oblate Identity), Hope (Mission) and Communion.

At the end of the morning, the Capitulars learned how to use the electronic voting system, which they will be using in the coming days. They also reviewed the norms and formal procedures for debates and voting on official texts contained in the Chapter Directory. The afternoon session was dedicated to discussing proposed changes to some articles of the Constitutions and Rules.
