The chapter commission worked this morning on the additions to the motions as they were written out as projects the previous days. The afternoon was given over to a long plenary meeting, where every proposal was reviewed and supplemented with a number of remarks. The recasting of the constitutions did not immediately come to a compromise, and it was finally decided that the proposal developed by the commission set up for this purpose could be included during the next chapter period.Details
Who are the Brothers of Charity?
The Brothers of Charity are an international religious congregation with a strong commitment to various social issues.
From their foundation in 1807, the Brothers of Charity took on their mission in society: organize education and provide care for children, adolescents, and adults. They always sided with those who found no response to their request for help elsewhere.
As a result, the Brothers of Charity grew into a large congregational organization of brothers and lay staff members.
The Brothers of Charity have convent communities and initiatives in 30 countries around the world. They are most strongly represented in Africa and Asia.
