The Anglican-Roman Catholic Dialogue and its Reception - Adelbert Denaux
announced the results, Kate had received 15 votes and Gudrun 6 votes (with 2 abstentions) so 'KATE was welcomed as our next International President.
'COUNCIL OF MANAGEMENT: Adelbert
spoke of the fact that this was the first time it had been necessary to have an election like this in IEF
and more reflection was needed on the timetable procedures for any future elections so that Regions had enough time to consult on all the candidates.
At the end of the meeting Gisèle paid tribute to Adelbert
for all he
had done as our International President, and at the Plenary Session Kate followed this up by giving thanks for all his
God-given gifts that he
has put at the service of IEF
, gifts of scholarship, wisdom, ecumenical openness, quiet but firm skill in presiding over all our debates and discussions, and always his
humour and humility.
