Council General International

Appointments are valid until September 8th, 2023.

On a regular basis, the President General International (PGI), brother Renato Lima de Oliveira, publishes the list of members, from all parts of the world, who have generously accepted the invitation to hold office at the Council General International.

These appointments are valid until September 8, 2023, the date on which the 16th PGI’s term of office shall end. The document is published after due consultation with Council members and countries making up the Confederation.

Brother Renato Lima stated: “I thank all the people who have taken part in the International Structure over these first five years of office, and I express my immense gratitude for the services rendered. I would like to kindly ask those who are still with us to keep on working with the same affection and loyalty, and welcome those who have just joined the Structure”.

Indeed, there are a myriad of tasks and missions to be carried out by the Council General. Behind each one, there is a committed Vincentian who will do his or her best, with God’s help, to fulfill the strategic planning of our organization. Being a member of the Council General is an honor, a great responsibility and an immense privilege.
