The friars of the Province held their Mid-Chapter via Zoom Conferencing from Tuesday, June 9 through Thursday, June 11. Approximately 85 friars participated in the five 75-90-minute sessions from all of the communities, including friars from Rome, Peru and Japan. This meeting, a first in this fashion in the Province’s history – as well as, likely, in the Order’s – went relatively well. A very positive sign was the expressed desire to use this form of communication for other Province purposes in the future. Mid-Chapters are held in the middle of a provincial’s four-year term to review the life of the Province, its ministries and needs.
