Twenty-Seven (27) Capitulars headed by no less than Fray Miguel Miro, OAR, Prior General of the Order, gathered today, February 12, 2018 at the Talavera House of Prayer in Brgy. Quiot, Pardo, Cebu City for the 7th Provincial Chapter of the OAR Province of St. Ezekiel Moreno. Fray Dionisio Selma, OAR, in his video invitation to pray for the success of this chapter stressed the importance of this event because the challenges highlighted in the 2016 General Chapter are now passed to the provincial level for implementation. The major restructuring of the Order where the usual 8 provinces have now been reduced to 4 has been the primary concern. But in particular, the Province of St. Ezekiel Moreno is faced with the challenge of expanding its mission territory to the neighboring countries in Asia. The 27 capitulars are Fr. Dionisio Selma, OAR (Prior Provincial); Fr. Lauro larlar, OAR (former prior Provincial); Fr. Julius Marcos (Vicar Provincial); Fr. Amado Emmanuel Bolilia, OAR; Fr. Edgar Tubio, OAR; Fr.
