Provincial Chapter - preparation meeting, Feb. '08
About 6 weeks ago I found myself on the list of the 24 delegate Brothers elected to represent the 300+ in the Province (France, Enlgand + Italy) at our next Provincial Chapter in October. We were called to a weekend of preliminary meeting at our Mother House in Ploërmel to set the agenda for the pre-Chapter consultations/discussions that will be taking place in each community over the intervening months.
It was good to see so many Brothers that I know well amongst the other delegates. Spending 5 years in France during my studies has helped me to get to know a large number of French Brothers, many of whom have become firm friends of mine. So as well as the serious side of the meetings, we also take the time to socialise and have a bit of fun in the evenings.
Here are some photos from the weekend.
