I am the new provincial superior of the MSC-Philippine Province. I was elected provincial superior last June 9, 2022, and I assumed my office during my installation last January 27, 2023, at the last day of our provincial assembly. We have just finished our Provincial Chapter last April 17 – 28, 2023. At the moment, I and my council members are preparing for the coming Strategic Planning for our programs and projects in the province based on the acts and resolutions of the chapter. We are also preparing for the coming MSC Provincial Conference to finalize and execute especially on the major decisions made during the chapter after the final approval from the general administration. I am doing my consultations to the whole members of the province to be updated on their situations and to prepare themselves especially those who are affected by a minor reshuffling of new assignments.
