New Archbishop of Davao, uhm.

Almost forgot about it!

Vatican City, 11 February 2012 (VIS) - The Holy Father:

Appointed Archbishop Romulo G. Valles of Zamboanga, Philippines, as metropolitan archbishop of Davao (area 2,443, population 1,477,000, Catholics 1,185,000, priests 157,religious 809), Philippines. He succeeds Archbishop Fernando R. Capalla, whose resignation from the pastoral care of the same archdiocese the Holy Father accepted, upon having reached the age limit.


Some notes:

Archbishop Valles was a priest from the Diocese of Tagum along with the current Auxiliary of Davao, Bishop George Rimando.

Valles is chair of the CBCP Commission for Liturgy. He is a student of....

Our favorite liturgical murderer, dissent school, Euntes, is located in Zamboanga. Get now the drift.

He is only 60 years old so if we consider that, he may be archbishop of Davao for 15 more years.

Oh boy.  He is not TLM friendly.

Now Zamboanga is left without a bishop once again.
