Every four years the Glenmary Community gathers for our "General Chapter." This week all of our priests brothers and students are gathered together. Our Glenmary Constitution states, "all members of the Society under perpetual oath will elect the President and the two Vice Presidents. The process shall be prayerful and provide time for dialogue between the candidates for office and the membership of the Society as well as among the members themselves."
We are gathered at St. Meinrad Archabbey and Seminary in Indiana for our Chapter. The first three days are dedicated to prayer and reflections. We are grateful to have Abbot Jerome from Subiaco monastery in Arkansas to lead us though these days of prayer in preparation for our elections.
