New Delegate

The Superior General of the Society of St Paul has appointed Fr Vincenzo Santarcangelo as his personal Delegate to the UK-Ireland region of St Pauls, with immediate effect.

Until now Fr Vincenzo was General Manager of Edizioni San Paolo, based in Milan, and joins us after a time of much uncertainty following the recent death of Fr Sebastian Karamvelil. A member of the Society of St Paul since 1983, Fr Vincenzo, aged 61, brings to the Region a mandate from the Superior General which will help revitalise and expand our work.
