The capitulars of the Provincial Chapter convened at the Javellana Hall for the second and final day of the Chapter. Their main task was to deliberate on the “motions” of the Province and the members for the X General Chapter.

The session began with a community prayer led by Bro. Hansel Mapayo. The capitulars then approved the Minutes of Meeting presented by Fr. Cris Robert Cellan, one of the actuaries, and the News Bulletin prepared by Rev. Angelo Paolo Asprer, information officer. After sharing ideas, they came out with motions that dealt with the immediate preparation for perpetual and some revision in the SSP Constitution and Directory. They deemed other proposals as “motions” for the Provincial Chapter next year.

Having tackled all matters of the Chapter, the capitulars spent some time in exchange of information and views. The Chapter closed with a Eucharistic celebrationat noontime, presided by Fr. Jose Aripio. In his homily, Fr. Tim Melliza gave a timely reminder on humble listening and dialogue. Fr. Aripio then thanked everyone for his presence and participation and declared the Chapter closed.
