Provincial Chapter of Madagascar

The Provincial Chapter of Madagascar took place from 04 to 07 January 2021 at the Centre Spirituel Ste Thérèse de L’Enfant Jésus, Antananarivo. Bro Maminiaina Michel Razafimandimby began a second 3-year term as Provincial at this Chapter. The Chapter community consisted of 26 members, 6 of whom were lay people.

The meeting lasted 4 days during which the capitulants exchanged and reflected on the following themes: mission, community life, formation and centralised management of finances. It was also an opportunity to review and make amendments to the norms of the Province.

At the beginning of the Chapter, Brothers Ken and Óscar, the Liaison Councillors for Madagascar sent a message of encouragement and support to the capitulants by means of a virtual meeting. And on the last day, Brother Ernesto, Superior General, joined them. In his speech, he invited the participants to become “beacons of hope in this turbulent world” and to “build centres of light”. The three members of the General Council all stressed the importance of turning the resolutions taken during this meeting into action.

The new provincial animation team elected is made up of Brothers Camille Marie Ramarosandratana (Vice Provincial), Toussaint Randriamanantena, Jean Albert Thomas Randrianantenaina and Maurice Juvence Heriniaina.

A Mass of thanksgiving brought together all the participants marking the closure of the Provincial Chapter.
