INDONESIA: The Congregation of the Mission of the Province of Indonesia and 500 Catholics yesterday welcomed their new superior Father Robertus Wijanarko, at the Blessed Virgin Mary Church in Kepanjen, East Java. Members of the congregation of fathers and brothers are known as “Vincentians” after their founder St. Vincent de Paul. “As a leader, the new superior should not only tell others what to do but also work together with them in serving God,” said Bishop Vincentius Sutikno Wisaksono of Surabaya who led the Mass. Father Wijanarko said he cannot promise anything. “But I will work hard based on our province’s statute and norm,” he said. The new superior was a professor at the Malang-based Widya Sasana College of Philosophy and Theology.   IJ13030.1638
