2017 Extraordinary FALC Assembly

On July 18-20, 2017, the Ministers Provincial, Custodes and Delegates of the Latin American Jurisdictions met for the 2017 Extraordinary Assembly of the Federación Conventuales America Latina (FALC). The meeting was held at the friary of San José in Montevideo, Uruguay, part of the “Rioplatense” Province of St. Anthony of Padua in Argentina-Uruguay. The Assistant General for the FALC, Friar Carlos TROVARELLI, also attended.

The aim of the meeting was to review the General Statutes. The work was guided by Friar Victor MORA MESÉN, a member of the Executive Committee for the Revision of the Constitutions (CERC).
Friar Victor introduced some guidelines that were helpful in understanding the statutory revisions. After reading each number, there was a period of fraternal dialogue.
Friar Victor also led a reflection on the main points of the revision of the Constitutions in view of the forthcoming General Chapter. The presence of the Assistant General Friar Carlos TROVARELLI was also helpful.
Other issues were dealt with during the Assembly: the next Rivotorto Course; the finalizing of a mission with the post-novitiate friars, and the second meeting of the FALC Novice Masters.
The FALC President, Friar Jhon Jairo MOLINA CASTAÑEDA, informed the participants about the meeting of the Federation Presidents with the General Definitory held last June.
Special thanks go to the Minister Provincial of the “Rioplatense” Province, Friar Aldo Andrés CÚCARO and to the guardian and friars of the friary of San José in Montevideo, for their fraternal spirit and hospitality.

Friar Maurizio BRIDIO, FALC Secretary
