The Interprovincial Chapter of the Third Order (IPTOC) along the Joint First Order Chapter (JFOC) are meeting at High Leigh, Hertfordshire, from 6th to 15th September. The Bishop Protector, Minister Provincial, Provincial Formation Guardian and Provincial Novice Guardian (Bishop Stephen, Jamie, Paul and Peter) will all be attending (as will John Lovatt, our Provincial Treasurer, as an observer) and among the business will be the election of a new Minister General of TSSF, in succession to Ken Norian, and the ratification of a new Constitution.
There will also be talks from Sam Wells, the Vicar of St Martin in the Fields, Markus Heinze of Franciscans International, Tibor Kauser (Minister General of OFS) and Paula Pierce (National Minister of OFS GB), Richenda Milton-Daws from Franciscan Aid and Paul Alexander, on the Francis Film.
Please pray for us.
