The promotion of Fr Moreno from president of the Ateneo de Zamboanga, a Catholic and Jesuit university in western Mindanao, to father provincial of the Philippine province was confirmed in a memorandum on Saturday.

Fr Moreno gained his BA in Pre-Divinity at the Ateneo de Manila University before heading to Britain where he read Development Studies to doctorate level.

He is the current vice-president of the board of trustees of the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines.
