Brothers from Rome and across the District of ANZPPNG, have begun to arrive in Australia to attend the 2018 District Chapter which will be held at the Hermitage, Mittagong from the 8-11 July.
The Chapter, primarily for Brothers, will be attended by 30 delegates including representation from Lasallian Mission Council, following the recent Mission Assembly attended primarily by Lay Lasallians, according to the structures prescribed for the Institute.
In addition to receiving various District reports, the Chapter will focus especially on the District Strategic Plan 2018-2022. Over the past twelve months, consultations have taken place across the District to inform the plan which sets the scene for the way forward over the next four years and beyond. It is anticipated that the Strategic Plan will be the blueprint for delivering on the theme of the Chapter, the "Promise of Vitality".
The Draft Plan was a major item at the Mission Assembly where many suggestions were made as to how the Plan could be improved and strengthened, as well as expressions of affirmation for the themes and content developed during the consultation process.
