Having fulfilled the requirements as contained in LCO 257 and 258, the Master of the Order, fr Bruno Cador has raised the General Vicariate of St Thomas Aquinas in Belgium to the status of a Vice-Province with all rights and obligations.
This was done with the due consultation of the General Council of the Order and it takes effect from the 11th of March 2014, the day of its promulgation. This decision is part of the process of the restructuring of the Order.
