Missionaries of the Most Precious Blood elect new superior

.- The Congregation of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood have elected Father Francesco Bartoloni as their new superior general for the next six years. 

The election took place during the 19th General Assembly at the Most Precious Blood School in Rome July 16-27.

The assembly’s task included electing new leadership for the period of 2007-2013, in addition to considering some revisions of the congregation’s constitutions.

The gathering concluded with a vote on a final message and decree and the celebration of the Mass. On Saturday, July 28, members were able to meet with their new superior.

The Missionaries of the Most Precious Blood is a society of Apostolic Life founded by St. Gaspar at the Abbey of San Felix in Italy on August 15, 1815.  Its spirituality is characterized by community life, perfection in charity, with special emphasis on the apostolate and the missions.

The new superior, Father Bartoloni, was born in Giano dell’Umbria-Perugia. He entered the congregation in 1973 and was ordained a priest in 1974.  He spent a number of years working in the country of Tanzania.
