In April, the final version of the Proposition for A Way into the Future was formally accepted by the Congregation Leadership Team of the Christian Brothers. There were significant changes made, arising from the feedback received from Brothers across the Congregation. The CLT is most grateful for those many Brothers who made comments and suggestions. Not every suggestion is reflected in a change, but all are noted and will provide material for the Transition Support Team later this year.
We have a sense of reaching a milestone on the journey and that the Spirit is with us.

So we now no longer have 'a Proposition’ but a series of working documents to take forward the A Way into the Future process.
We also made significant changes to the Validations which describe in more detail each paragraph of the new plan. We encourage Brothers to take time to continue reading these two updated documents.

The third document which is important is “The Message” by Philip Pinto which remains unchanged. This describes the spiritual underpinning for the whole process of A Way into the Future without which it could be a business restructuring operation. It is a journey of the Spirit towards a new form of Brotherhood. - click to download
