Members of the Participatory Organizational Council met last week to
review progress of the sharing of the Action Plan
and to gauge the success of locality conversations around the
plan. Consensus was that localities are starting to conduct their
discussions, which are an important foundation for the path forward.
In addition, a new team was launched with the
goal of defining the scope of the process of renewal
for 1st and 2nd degree members. Members of the POC
noted that Legionaries are involved in the review of the order’s
constitutions and consecrated members (3rd degree) are starting the process
of reviewing their documents. The hope is to develop a
way in which the 1st and 2nd degree members can
engage in a related process.
The POC also decided
that the annual survey of members conducted last summer will
be done annually.
