CBCP head joins Dominican order

June 15, 2015, 11:00 a.m. - THE HEAD of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) is now a member of the Dominican Clerical Fraternity of the Philippines (DCFP).

Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas, CBCP president, received the habit of Saint Dominic during the vespers of the Dominican Community of Manaoag last June 12 at the Minor Basilica of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary of Manaoag in Pangasinan. Fr. Gerard Timoner, O.P., prior provincial, led the celebration.

Villegas considered it a blessing to be part of the Dominican order.
