  1. Economics and Religious Life
  2. Key Principles for Communion and Economy
  3. Relationship between Governing Authority and the Service of Treasurers
  4. Communion of Goods – a discussion paper
  5. A handbook for Economes – developing principles and guidelines
  6. 2019: Reporting to the General Chapter (and to circumscription Chapters)
  7. 2022: Security of Assets of the Order


Fr. Delariarte stayed in Rome for almost a month because after the conference for treasurers, he also attended the International Congress on Luther and the Augustinian Order held from November 9 – 11, 2017.
