The General Chapter Event takes place every six years. It provides a special opportunity for the Institute to review its life and to renew the dynamism of its charism within the church. It draws up definite objectives so that the Institute may better accomplish its mission in the present day world.
Council of the Institute
A Council of the Institute is held approximately every two years - in the years when there is no General Chapter.
In May 2012, the CI gathered in Lima, Peru; in October 2015, the CI gathered in Bangkok, Thailand; in February 2018, the CI gathered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
