Election of the Superior General

Today the 47th General Chapter of the Congregation of the Passion of Jesus Christ has re-elected Father Joachim Rego CP as Superior General. Father Joachim was born in Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar on 16 August, 1954. He was professed on 17 January, 1976 and ordained to the priesthood on 28 November 1981.
