Discretorium

Vocations “come and follow me”

The Discretorium

The Discretes make up the Discretorium; they are friars who are elected according to the different language groups (a linguistic group is represented by at least 12 people who speak the same language) and they are directly related to the Curia.
The Discretorium meets once a month to help the Custos in making various decisions.
The Discretorium approves the annual accounts and the reports of the Friars to who it has entrusted specific tasks.
At least once a year, it welcomes those responsible for formation, who must report on their activities. The Custos and the Custodial Vicar are members by right of Discretorium.
