After conducting the affairs of the Chapter, the capitulars were encouraged to reflect upon the documents given by the General Government for possible motions that could be presented in the General Chapter. The purpose of the motions is threefold: 1) Allow the participants of the 9th General Chapter and the emerging General Government understand the peculiar situation of the Province in its present socio-cultural-religious scenario; 2) Underline the problems and challenges faced in reading and “interpreting the signs of the times” and in the process of “rekindling the Charism received in creative fidelity to the Founder”; and,  3)  find suitable solutions so that the Pauline mission becomes relevant and acceptable to the vast majority of people and challenging and fulfilling to members.

At the concluding Eucharist celebrated by Fr Michael Raj, the Provincial Superior declared the 14th Provincial Chapter India-Nigeria closed.
