Interchapter in Oxford

Friday, April 16, 2010
Halfway through the Prior Provincial's four year term of office there is an extended meeting of the provincial council or what is sometimes called an 'interchapter'. The provincial and his council are joined by priors and other superiors who are not already members of the council. The task of this meeting is to deal with all that seems useful for the good of the province, in the first place by reviewing whether the ordinations and exhortations of the last provincial chapter and general chapter have been put into practice.

The interchapter of the English province took place in Oxford from 14th to 16th April. Brothers travelled from Barbados and Grenada as well as from the other six communities in Britain (London, Cambridge, Leicester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Newcastle). The chapter was a time for business and decisions but also for prayer and fraternity, a time to catch up on news and to renew friendships.

Please continue to pray for the work of the Dominicans, in particular asking the Holy Spirit's guidance of the Order as we prepare for the general chapter in September. At this chapter, to be held in Rome, a new Master of the Order will be elected.
