Description

Minutes of PF general meeting of 13 May 1658 discussing among other issues, the request by a group of secular French priests who having already lived together for eight years, had formed a sort of seminary, where they are trained for the missions. They ask to be allowed to join PF and receive all privileges and faculties that are normally given to missionaries in partibus. They desire to go beyond their current mission of converting the Protestants of their area. Lastly, they state that PF will always be provided with candidates that do not have any temporal interests, and will be ready to be dispatched anywhere that PF chooses;  they note that several priests have been appointed as missionaries to China, Tonchino and Cocincina [Vietnam]. PF decided to postpone the discussion of the matter to the next meeting.
