Prevost Ordained as Bishop
The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, 2014 will be a most memorable one for our former Prior General, Robert Prevost. In the presence of 24 bishops, hundreds of priests, Friars, men and women of various religious congregations, seminarians, and lay faithful, our brother Robert was ordained as a bishop and became the fourth bishop of the diocese of Chiclayo, in Peru.
From the moment the liturgical procession began from the bishop's residence until the final procession exiting the cathedral, it was a joyous celebration. Many, many people during the procession offered a sincere and warm welcome with the words, "Bienvenido Monsignor, Roberto!" (Welcome, Bishop Robert!). The Papal Nuncio, James Patrick Green, was the presiding bishop who ordained Robert. (OSA Gen Curia Website)
