Thursday, June 14th

After the morning work in the 5 commissions, in which the assembly was divided to work in preparation of the final document. In the afternoon a meeting was held for the important debate on the election of the new general council: number of members , tasks, residency, internationality, etc …

The evening culminated with the election of the new vicar general of the congregation in the person of Fr. Nadir Poletto, who was elected to the first scrutiny with a large majority.

Immediately after the standing ovation of all the Chapter members, Fr. Nadir said: “I did not expect it, but I accept!”. Next, the profession of faith and the fraternal embrace with all the Chapter members. Still moments of intense emotion and shining eyes! After the election in the hall, we celebrated Holy Eucharist, presided over by the Bishop of Sucumbìos (Ecuador) Mons. Celmo Lazzari, who came to visit us and it was very much appreciated!

Fr. Nadir was born in Vista Alegre do Prata (Rio Grade do Sul – Brazil) on November 8, 1970. He professed for the first time in the congregation on January 30, 1993 and was ordained priest on December 8, 2001. He worked in the vocation promotion, he was the formator of the theologians in Viterbo and was currently the formator of the philosophers in Brasilia. In the coming days the commissions will continue to work and also the election of the other general councilors is fixed, of which we will give you, as always, timely news … thanking you for how you are following our news and seeing our photos on this official website. The statistics tell us that you are just so many all over the world! Thank you! Bravo!
