Highlights of the Final Week of General Chapter


The final week was a very busy one for the delegates. Several drafts of the newly revised constitutions were presented, debated and finally approved. A general outline of the new complimentary text, which has been referred to as “Rule of Life”, was also presented and approved. It will be finalized by a writing synthesis group under the supervision of the General Council and will also have a new title. The General Chapter also approved a statement to victims of Child Abuse, which will be released in the coming weeks from the General House.
