Fr. Herman Abcede, Provincial Superior of St. Matthew Province, convoked the 2nd Provincial Chapter on April 15, 2018, six months before the event scheduled on October 16-20, 2018 at the Oasis of Prayer Rogate Spirituality Center in Silang, Cavite. The theme of the Chapter, “Our Charismatic Identity in the Challenges of St. Matthew Province”, is greatly inspired by the reflections and indications of the XII General Chapter of the Congregation.
The 2nd Provincial Chapter, being an assembly of all perpetually professed religious of the Province, includes 103 members in the list of those convoked.
The program includes the election of the Provincial and his Council, and the approval of the Manuals of the various sectors of the Province. Invited to give a reflection to the Chapter members are Bishop Pablo David of the Diocese of Caloocan, and the Bishop Reynaldo Evangelista of the Diocese of Imus where our communities of Silang, Cavite belong. The last day of the Chapter closes with the Ordination to the Priesthood of Filipino, Indonesian and Vietnamese confreres on October 20, the day before the World Mission Sunday.
