On June 17, 2018, a total of 132 participants, broken down into one hundred eighteen voting capitulars and fourteen non-voting observers, will officially embark on the responsibility to carry on the spirit and nature of a General Chapter.

As in the preceding seventeen General Chapters, their task is to inspire all our members towards a new zeal, a renewal, and a re-thinking of our religious-missionary life and activity.

A representation in terms of the country of birth of the SCP:

India with 22 capitulars
Indonesia with 18 capitulars
Poland with 12 capitulars
Philippines with 11 capitulars
Ghana with 07 capitulars
Argentina with 06 capitulars
Brazil with 05 capitulars
Germany with 05 capitulars
Slovakia with 05 capitulars
Vietnam with 05 capitulars

On July 1, 1898, our Founder wrote to Father Piel the following: "I merely conclude the realities and situations - It is the Lord who provides them." The road to the 18th General Chapter brought infusions of realities and situations, concerns, and future commitments by individuals, in communities, in provinces, in commissions, in caucus and leadership teams.
As a Society and with our trust in the Holy Spirit we believe that this work preceding the 18th General Chapter with the theme “‘The Love of Christ impels us’ (2 Cor 5:14): Rooted in the Word, Committed to His Mission” has already fostered in us a process of personal and communal spiritual rekindling and brought us back to the Word of God as the source of our life, vocation, mission, and our religious missionary commitment.
