During the second half of 2004, plenary meetings of the General Council and the Central Advisory were held. These meetings, convoked by the Prelate, are aimed at setting out the broad goals of the apostolic work of the Prelature, in its two sections, for the upcoming months.

Between November 25 and 29, people from various countries gathered in Castelromano, a conference center in Castelgandolfo, near Rome, to join efforts and share ideas on biomedical projects. Those taking part in the meeting also participated in a get-together with the Prelate of Opus Dei.

Around November 8, a Mass was said for the eternal rest of Bishop Adolfo Rodríguez Vidal in all of the centers of the Prelature in Chile on the first anniversary of his death. Bishop Rodríguez Vidal, who began the apostolic work of Opus Dei in that country in 1950, was born in Tarragona, Spain, in 1920, joined Opus Dei in 1940, and was ordained in 1948. He was Regional Vicar until 1988, the year in which he was named Bishop of Los Angeles, Chile. Saint Josemaría had also named him as his delegate for several countries in Latin America at various times. During the years when he was Vicar, and especially after the trip there of Saint Josemaría in 1974, the apostolic work begun in 1950 spread to many parts of Santiago and to many other Chilean cities such as San Fernando, Viña del Mar, Concepción and Antofagasta.
