As part of the process of the restructuring of entities in the Order, the Master of the Order, fr Bruno Cadoré has issued the Decree of the suppression of the General Vicariate of Russia and Ukraine and transferred the responsibility of the mission of the Order in that territory to the Province of Poland. The Decree takes effect from the 7th of June 2016

This decision was taken after due consultation with the friars and council of the General Vicariate of Russia and Ukraine, the Prior Provincial and Council of the Province of Poland and the General Council of the Order.

By this Decree, all the 12 friars affiliated to the General Vicariate of Russia and Ukraine shall now be affiliated to the Province of Poland with all their rights and privileges. The 5 houses and all the properties of the General Vicariate of Russia and Ukraine shall now become part of the patrimony of the Province of Poland. 

It is hoped that this move will help to strengthen and promote the apostolic mission and regular observance of the friars in Russia/Ukraine which will in turn ensure the sustenance and growth of the mission of the Order there.
