Chapitre Régional / Regional Chapter

Nous avons reçu la lettre de convocation du XXIV Chapitre Général qui aura lieu à Rome du 14 au 27 juillet 2018.
Ce Chapitre Général doit être précédé d’un Chapitre Régional.
Notre Directoire Régional demande que la convocation d’un Chapitre Régional soit faite avec « l’avis du conseil » pour déterminer « le lieu et la date du chapitre » (page 25).
Ayant obtenu l’avis du Conseil Régional, le Chapitre Régional aura lieu mercredi, le 6 juin 2018, dès 9h00, à Dehon House, Ottawa.
Comme le XXIV Chapitre Général sera principalement un Chapitre d’élection, le Chapitre Régional sera relativement bref. Les themes à aborder seront les suivants:
1. La vérification du droit de siéger des participants, l’élection d’un scrutateur, la nomination d’un secrétaire;
2. L’état de la Région ((il faut envoyer un texte de 3 pages sur l’état de la Région, qui fera partie des documents du Chapitre Général);
3. Approbation des changements au Directoire Régional`
4. Motions pour le Chapitre Général;
5. Élection d’un délégué et de son substitut;
6. Varia.

La communauté d’Ottawa offrira l’ébergement et les repas.

We have received the convocation letter of the General Superior for the XXIV General Chapter. It is to be held in Rome from July 14 to July 27, 2018.
This General Chapter needs to be preceded by a Regional Chapter.
Our Regional Directory requires that such a convocation of the Regional Chapter take place “with the advice of the council” in order to “determine the time and place of the chapter, and to convene the chapter.” (page 25)
Having obtained the advice of the Regional Council, the Regional Chapter will be held on Wednesday June 6, starting at 9 a.m. at Dehon House in Ottawa.
Since the XXIVth General Chapter will be mainly an election chapter, the Regional Chapter will not require a great amount of time to complete. The topics for the chapter will be the following:
1. The determination of the members of the Regional Chapter; the election of the scrutineer; the appointment of a secretary
2. The state of the Region (the Region needs to give a three-page account of the Region’s life which will be published as part of the General Chapter documents. )
3. Approval of changes to the Regional Directory.
4. Motions for the General Chapter to consider
5. Election of a delegate and his substitute.
6. Other topics
The Regional Chapter will be followed in the afternoon of June 6 by a Holy Hour and on June 7 at 10:00 by a Eucharist to celebrate the Feast of the Sacred Heart.
Lodging and meals will be provided through the good offices of the Ottawa community.
May this period be a moment of grace for the whole congregation.
In the Heart of Christ

John van den Hengel, Regional Superior
