There used to be three-year intervals between every provincial chapters. This year is the first time to hold a provincial chapter after a quadrennium. It was a blessing in disguise. Otherwise, it would have been more difficult to hold this chapter last year when Covid19 was yet at its peak. Yet more and more challenges are added to any elected prior provincial of this province. This is the reason why every provincial chapter is crucial to the life of our province. As we enter another season of election and determinations, we also continue to pray that the Holy Spirit be always with the capitulars as they fulfill their important role of drawing the future of the province of St. Ezekiel Moreno.
