Dear RCRI members,
 
We know that many of you who have General Chapters scheduled in the coming months and are concerned about postponing them and extending terms of office considering the restrictions in place to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. After making available the “Q&A on the Cancellation and Postponement of General Chapters,” I contacted the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life & Societies of Apostolic Life in Rome for further guidance.
 
The Dicastery sent the following guidance:
 
The Institute leadership is to write a letter to the Prefect, Cardinal João Braz de Aviz informing the Dicastery that the General Chapter has been postponed and the terms of office extended. The Institute leadership is also to write a letter to the Prefect informing the Dicastery of the new dates for the General Chapter once they have been established.
 
The Dicastery will send a response to each letter it receives.
 
You may wish to send the letter through the services of the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington DC, or through the US Postal Service.
 
Below are the mail addresses for the Prefect of CICLSAL and the Apostolic Nunciature.
 
His Eminence
João Braz Cardinal de Aviz
Prefect
Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life
and Societies of Apostolic Life
00120 Vatican City
 
Most Reverend Christophe Pierre
Apostolic Nuncio to the United States
3339 Massachusetts Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20008
 
God’s Blessings on each of you and your institutes,
 
Sr. Sharon Euart, RSM
Executive Director
