In the Institute, the function of authority is the same as in all states of perfection where members are bound to their leaders by the vow of obedience.

In the Institute, the hierarchy is as follows:

  • A Director General and his Council for the entire Institute;
  • A District Director and his Council with authority over his own District;
  • Team Facilitators who have the responsibility of a local Team;
  • According to need, persons responsible for the formation process may be added.

The Authorities of the Institute are the first servants of the Will of God, they are the Church's representatives among their brethren. It is as an authority of service that they will foster a climate of confidence and collaboration among everyone.
