Franciscan Friars Minor elect new Minister General



The Order of Franciscan Friars Minor have elected Father Michael Perry as the new Minister General. He replaces Archbishop Jose Rodriguez Carballo, who in April this year, was appointed by Pope Francis to be the Secretary of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life. Before his election to this new office, Fr. Perry was the Vicar General of the Order. He has in the past served as an advisor on African development for Catholic Relief Services, and as head of the Africa desk at Franciscans International at the United Nations. He spent 10 years as a pastor, teacher and as Director for development for Franciscan programs in Congo.
