Chapter Preparatory Commission Meeting

Salvatorians of the male branch will be gathering next year in St. Ottilien, Germany from 13 August to 07 September 2018 for our XIX General Chapter.

This gathering requires much planning and preparation. Consequently last year a Chapter Preparatory Commission was established to do this work. The Commission already has had four meetings, the most recent from 19-23 July 2017 in St. Ottilien itself. 

The Commission members spent a very intense week hammering out the details of logistics, time schedules and processes for the election of the new Generalate among other things. As part of the visit to the site, they also reviewed preliminary plans for the Jubilee Celebration of the Centenary of Death of our Venerable Founder, Fr. Francis Jordan, which will take place on 07, 08 and 09 September 2018 in nearby St. Peter’s Seminary (Freiburg, Germany), Tafers (Switzerland), and Gurtweil (Germany) respectively.
