October 30-31, 2017: The Ministers Custodial (aka Custos) from our two Provincial Custodies, Friar Ronaldo Gomes da Silva, OFM Conv. (Immaculate Conception Custody – Brazil) and Friar Ciprian Budău, OFM Conv. (Blessed Agnellus of Pisa Custody – Great Britain/Ireland) participated in our most recent two day Provincial Definitory Meeting. Our Lady of the Angels Province holds Definitory Meetings every six weeks to discuss province business including requests made by friars and ministries. The Definitory is made up of friars elected as Definitor for a term of four years, as well as those elected as Minister Provincial, Vicar Provincial and Province Secretary. In the course of the two days, the two Custos (also an elected position) carefully observed how our Provincial Definitory normally operates. In addition, they each presented sets of motions passed by their respective 2017 Ordinary Custodial Chapters, for validation by our Provincial Definitory.
