General Assemblies

The body of bishops meets typically twice a year for a General Assembly to transact its business and address matters of concern within its civil and canonical mandates. The assembly is conducted in public and made available online via live stream. Decisions normally require a two-thirds majority vote of those bishops present and voting. Decisions are decided by a voice vote but can also be done with a written ballot. Electronic means can also be used to record votes, which are available to each bishop.
