Rome approved!

The election of Br. Wayne Fitzpatrick as the First Consulter on the U.S. Regional Council has been approved by Rome, according to U.S. Regional Superior Father Michael Duggan.

This means we Maryknollers here in the States may now proceed to choosing the second and third consulters to fill out our regional council.

The approval by Rome was needed since canonically and according to Maryknoll's Constitutions, a Brother cannot serve as a major superior in Maryknoll.  We are by definition a "clerical Society."
