From July 16 to August 1, the 24 Chapter Fathers met in Morlupo (Rome), Italy, to study the reality, evaluate it, choose it and plan for the future of the Congregation of the Cavanis Fathers.
In a letter to our Father General, Pedro Aguado, they communicated the names of the new Superior General and his Counselors for the six-year period 2019-2025, stressing that “it was a moment of grace and prophecy for us to look to the future.”
Superior General: V. Rev. Father Manoel Rosalino Pereira Rosa, CSCh
First Counselor and Vicar General, V. R. Fr. Irani Luiz Tonet, CSCh
Second Counselor, V. R. Fr. Ciro Sicignano, CSCh
Third Counselor, V. R. Fr. Paulo Oldair Welter, CSCh
Fourth Counselor V. R. Fr. Armando Bacalso, CSCh
The new Superior General for the first time in the history of the Congregation of the Cavanis Fathers is a non-Italian religious and on the Council there is a Filipino religious. Thus, the Chapter has opted for a greater representation of the international and intercultural reality of the Institute.
We wish the new General Council that the Holy Spirit enlighten each of his decisions and may live his charism faithfully, united as Calasanctian Family.
Fr. Andrés Valencia Henao Sch. P.
