Rev. fr. Florentino A. Bolo, Jr., O.P., JCD, immediate past Director of the Institute of Religion and Vice-Rector of the Central Seminary, formally assumes his new assignment as the Socius of the Master of the Order for Apostolic Life, effective November 22, 2020.
With this appointment, fr. Bolo is now officially assigned in the Convent of Santa Sabina in Rome and reports directly to Very Rev. fr. Gerard Francisco P. Timoner III, O.P., Master of the Order. fr. Bolo is not new to the General Curia, though, as he was appointed in 2013 by then-Master of the Order fr. Bruno Cadoré, O.P. as International Coordinator of the Priestly Fraternities.
fr. Bolo was the Quadricentennial Secretary-General of UST and his priestly ministry in the Philippines allowed him to play a vital role in the growth of the Priestly Fraternities of St. Dominic in the country.
