Stockton Priest to Head National Group

May 13, 2000|Religion News Service

The Rev. Robert Silva, a priest of the Stockton, Calif., Roman Catholic diocese, is the new president of the National Federation of Priests' Councils.

Installed May 4, Silva will serve in the post from July 1 through June 2003.

"As the NFPC begins its ministry in the 21st century, it is my hope that the guiding principle for all that we do will be . . . proclaiming that ours is a good God whose gift is a future filled with promise [and] . . . serving our brothers and sisters with the humility of the Lord Jesus Christ who has washed our feet," Silva said.

The federation is an organization representing 118 councils of diocesan and religious clergy, whose membership totals about 25,000 Roman Catholic priests.
