Rome, 9 September 2022 – On the occasion of the meeting of the provincial and regional superiors with the General Council in Rome, Bro. Joel Ponsaran was chosen as the new general assistant, replacing Bro. Godfried Bekaert who died last March.
Bro. Joel is from the Philippines, where he was regional superior. In addition to his overall task as general councillor, he will receive the delegation from the General Council to oversee both the region of the Philippines and the foundation in Papua New Guinea.
We thank Bro. Joel for his willingness to serve as a new general councillor until the next General Chapter, which will be held in mid-2024.
