We started this day with the Laudes. In the morning we had a working session in which we continued our work on the recommendations. We also edited the General Chapter's message.

In the afternoon we evaluated the Chapter, sharing our own experiences. A solemn moment of sending out (PHOTOS) and the official closing of the Chapter were followed by a festive Eucharist at San Salvatore in Onda. During the homily Fr. Jacob Nampudakam – the General Superior, SAC – he said:

“At the beginning of another phase of the history of your Congregation, we are invited once again to assume the attitudes of a little child before God: freshness, trust and zeal for growth and life. Every child is a new creation, a new beginning, a sing of God’s love and goodness; he/she is open to new learning and surprises. Today is another new beginning in the history of your Congregation, open to the creative actions of the Holy Spirit”.

"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
