On November 8-12, 2021, the Provincial Custody of St. Francis in Bolivia conducted the first part of its Ordinary Chapter at the Marie Poussepin Retreat House in Cochabamba. This year, the Custody is celebrating forty-five years of presence in Bolivia.

All the friars of the Custody participated in the Chapter. Others present included the Assistant General for the Federación América Latina Conventuales (FALC), Friar Rogério PEREIRA XAVIER; the Minister Provincial of the Province of St. Anthony and Bl. James of Strepar in Poland (Cracow), Friar Marian GOŁĄB; and three invited friars: the Provincial Econom, Friar Jakub CZAJKA; the Provincial Delegate of Paraguay, Friar Marek WILK; and the Provincial Secretary for the Missions, Friar Dariusz GACZYŃSKI.
The Custodial Chapter took place in a very fraternal atmosphere, and the members of the new Custodial government were elected for the next four years. They are: Friar Ronald Ramiro ARMIJO ZELADA, Provincial Custos; Friar Wilson Mateo SEJAS HINOJOSA, Vicar Custos; Friar Narciso Eusebio MAMANI PANIAGUA, Secretary; and Friar Henry CUÉLLAR JIMENEZ, Definitor.
The confreres fraternally thanked the outgoing government for all the work it did during the last four-year term.
