The mission of the District Council is to promote the unity of the District and assist the Brother Visitor in exercising his duties.

The District Council’s responsibility extends to

  • the admission to perpetual profession;

  • the dismissal of a professed Brother, living in the District, whether he belongs to it or not, in emergency cases foreseen in Canon Law;

  • the transfer of goods from one house to another in the District;

  • the allocation of the contents of a house when it has been closed;

  • setting limits to the spending powers granted to Brother Directors and Bursars;

  • other exceptional administrative measures involving District finances.


The advice of the District Council is required in the following cases:

  •  the admission of candidates to the novitiate;

  •  the appointment of the Bursar and of others on the administrative staff of the District;

  • the convocation of the District Chapter.
