Fr. Dave Nicgorski, OMV, Rector Major of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary

Fr. Dave Nicgorski, OMV

During our summer hiatus from weekly updates on this column, an event occurred so momentous that it cannot wait until later….Fr. Dave Nicgorski, OMV, Provincial of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary U.S. Province, was elected Rector Major of the Congregation on July 14.  This means that Fr. Dave is now Father General of all the Oblates throughout the entire world — the successor of our founder, Venerable Bruno Lanteri.  This is a blessed event and our U.S. Province is delighted that one of our own has been chosen for this important position.

We congratulate Fr. Dave on his election and accompany him with our prayers and best wishes in the years ahead.
