The theme of the XXV General Chapter is Called to be United in a Changing World - "that they may believe" (Jn 17:20).
The Chapter Assembly undertook to reflect on the religious life of Dehonians in the face of the challenges of a changing world. The General Chapter is an opportunity to redefine goals, make decisions and ensure the value of our Charism for the Church and the world.
