The most recent meeting of the General Council took place from the 29th of August to the 8th of September. In addition to the various items of ordinary administration, and to hearing the reports of the General Councillors, the members began to reflect on the 2019 General Chapter. As a result of some extensive discernment and fraternal exchange the Council decided upon the theme of the General Chapter, as follows:
“«You are my witnesses» (Is 43,10); from one generation to the next: called to be faithful to our Carmelite charism”.
This General Chapter will be held in September, 2019 at Sassone, in Italy. The precise date will be published later, while the Preparatory Commission will be appointed at the next plenary meeting due to be held in December.
The Council also confirmed Fr. Christian Körner, O. Carm. as "administrator pro-tempore" of the office of the Bursar General
