The main focus on Friday was on legislative and administrative matters. Chapter commissions were set up and began work on proposals, juridical matters, and the final message of the General Chapter.
Descriptions and clarifications were made for initial draft proposals for amendments to the General Statutes, as well as for Chapter legislation. Areas addressed in these proposed statutory amendments included the care and safeguarding of minors and vulnerable adults, the organising of mission and evangelisation, government and administration, and fraternity.
In addition, Brother Paolo Quaranta and Brother Pierre Charland were elected to join Chapter Bursar Brother John Puodziunas on the Economic Commission of this General Chapter.
