Rector’s end-of-year message

Dear Friends

As the academic year draws to a close, the seminarians and priests are already at work preparing for their final exams. Some of them are concluding their formation period in Rome and will return to their countries of origin. Let us pray for them so that the Lord will grant them a flourishing priestly ministry full of fruits of holiness and evangelization.

I am also finishing my mission in Rome this year. After six happy years as Rector of Maria Mater Ecclesiae Pontifical College, my superiors have entrusted me with a new pastoral ministry at our Anahuac University in Mexico City.

I will leave for Mexico towards the middle of June. As stipulated in the Statutes of the College, the Dicastery for the Clergy will make public the designation of the new Rector of Mater Ecclesiae.

I thank God for these years of service to the Church in this institution dedicated to the formation of clergy and the service of the bishops of the world. I thank so many bishops, priests, and seminarians whom I have met over these years for their testimony and dedication to the Lord and the mission of evangelization. I ask you to pray for me and my new mission. On my part, I pray for all of you. A cordial greeting in Christ!

P. Enrique Tapia, LC. Rector
