After working on the feedback of the First Draft, the Commission for the Revision of the Constitutions has published the Second Draft of the Constitutions.

The Commission is reminding all Brothers to send their suggestions using a pdf copy of the consultation sheet and to email it to [email protected] by June 15.

The Commission will use the suggestions to prepare the third and final draft during July and August, which will be presented at the General Chapter in September.

The consultation on the first draft confirmed the proposal to simplify the Constitutions, retaining everything required by Canon Law, and to produce a complementary text containing items that go beyond such canonical requirements. The limited time available to us means that we are only able to present here the complete text of the Constitutions and Statutes.

During the months that the consultation is proceeding, the Commission will continue its work on the complementary text (what we called the “Rule of Life” in the first draft). Our intention is to present this text directly to the Chapter as a working document. Finally, in the light of this new consultation, a third draft of the Constitutions and Statutes will be prepared during the months of July and August.
