"The Regional Fraternity Council is the representative body of all of the Local Fraternities that together compose the Regional Fraternity, and has the power to create regional guidelines in conformity with the Rule, the General Constitutions and the National Statutes.
The Regional Fraternity Council shall meet at least once a year." (Art.22: 2-3; Statutes of the National Fraternity of the Secular Franciscan Order in the USA)
This weekend I will be attending the annual Chapter of the St. Elizabeth of Hungary Regional Fraternity, at the Franciscan Center in Andover, MA. Some business, some on-going formation, and a lot of prayer. More later.
