Maria Dolores Pérez Plé, the outgoing General Leader,  presented the new Leader, Councillors, and Substitutes to the participants.  She handed over to Maria Pilar Serrano, her successor,  the Cross that had accompanied her through her 12 years in office – one of the Crosses traditionally handed down from one Major Superior to another since the time of the Founder..  We thank Ma Dolores for her service to the Secular Institute, and  congratulate Maria Pilar,  her Council and Substitutes, and thank them for their availability  and commitment to continue the mission in and through their consecrated Secular vocation.
