The annual meeting of European Provincials took place from the 22nd to the 26th of this past October. The General Delegation of Egypt hosted the meeting this time.
The objective of the meeting, besides understanding the actual state of that Delegation and express the communion which the Order in Europe has with the religious at work there, was to get to know the Coptic Church and explore pathways of dialog with the Orthodox Church and Islam by means of meetings and conferences.
To this effect, they participated in an interreligious prayer meeting with Muslims and visited two monasteries: one Coptic and one Orthodox. Father Lukasz Kansy, ocd, II Definitor, and the President of European Provincials, Father Juan de Bono, ocd, of the Province of Malta conducted this meeting.
