Brother Lawrence Obiko reelected as Superior General of the CMM Brothers
General Chapter of the CMM Brothers: 8-28 November 2021
From 8 to 28 November 2021, the General Chapter of the CMM Brothers (Brothers of Mary Mother of Mercy) was held in Tilburg under the motto "Called to be merciful brothers, joyful and courageous in today's world".
The Chapter was celebrated in an atmosphere of brotherhood, openness, and a positive outlook on the future. In his speech after the closing celebration, Superior General Brother Lawrence Obiko called upon the capitulants to take this atmosphere back home, to the communities worldwide. He also repeated the motto of the Chapter: "Called to be merciful brothers, joyful and courageous in today's world." This will remain the motto of the Congregation for the next 6 years, not only as words on paper, but also, as Brother Lawrence said, "in our speaking, in our actions, in our work, in the communities, and even when we sleep."
