Br. Pedro Sáncez de León



New Secretary General

23/12/2009: General House

The General Council, in its meeting of 4 December, appointed as Secretary General, Br. Pedro Sáncez de León, of the province of Mediterránea, who will take up his duties on 1 April 2010.

Br. Pedro was born in 1956 in Spain (Villarrubia de los Ojos, Ciudad Real), and made his first profession in 1975. As a Marist he has international experience, since he made his scholasticate in Guatemala and spent some years in Ecuador. In 1990 he did university studies in Rome, and in 1996 became a member of the former province of Levante. Since then, he has filled various offices in his province: teacher, Provincial Councillor and member of the Provincial Pastoral Team, Director and College Administrator. Br. Pedro, therefore, comes to his new service to the Institute with ample experience in different fields and a good knowledge of languages: besides Spanish, he can communicate in Italian, English and French.
