Mother Catharina Shibuya, Abbess of Imari, whose resignation was accepted by the General Chapter of 2014 (vote 22) and which would become effective at the time of the 2016 Regular Visitation (vote 23) was postulated as abbess on October 29, 2016.

The Abbot General has confirmed this postulation (See vote 49 of the Acts of the General Chapter of 2014). Therefore Mother Catharina will offer her resignation again to the General Chapter of 2017.
