Prior Provincial installs Priors and Superiors

With the reshuffling of assignments last July 1, 2021, Prior Provincial, Rev. Fr. Andres D. Rivera Jr., OSA, has formally installed the Priors and Superiors of the different communities and residences of the Province of Sto. Niño de Cebu respectively.

He visited some communities to preside over the rite of installation while others were done virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

In the Constitutions of the Order of Saint Augustine (OSA), the local Prior is the head of the community and presides over each house. At the same time, he directs and represents the community.

It is also mandated that he should concern himself about learning the rights and obligations of the whole community as well as promoting common life and unity of the friars among themselves and with the Province or Vicariate, fostering discipline, and notifying the friars of the decisions from the higher superiors.
