27/11/2012: General House

From 21 to 23 November 2012 there took place in Rome the Assembly of the Union of Superiors General (USG). This is an organization of representation, co-ordination and support in the name of the approximately 55,000 male religious in the Church.

The Superior General dedicated a day and a half to the study of two current themes: the recently held Synod on the New Evangelization, and the economic crisis and its implications for consecrated life. In the time remaining, the Assembly elected a new governing body as well as delegates for some organizations for dialogue with the Holy See.

Elected as President of the USG for the period 2012-2015 was Fr José Rodríguez Carballo, Minister General of the Order of Friars Minor and as Vice-president the General of the Jesuits, Fr Adolfo Nicolás. The other elected members of the Executive Council of the USG are: Fr Bruno Cadoré (Order of Preachers – Dominicans); Fr Mario Aldegani (Josephites of Murialdo); Fr Flavio Peloso (Opera di Don Orione – Orionians);  Fr Josep María Abella Batlle (Claretian Missionaries); Fr Eamon Fitzgerald (Trappists); Br Emili Turú (Marist Brothers); Fr Thomas Handgraetiner (Premonstratension Canons); Fr Richard Baawobr (Society of the Missionaries of Africa); Fr Javier Álvarez-Ossorio (Congregation of the Sacred Hearts – Picpus); Fr Pedro Aguado Cuesta (Poor Clerics Regular of the Mother of God – Scoloppians).
