POPE FRANCIS appointed on Tuesday Thomasian Bishop Dennis Villarojo as the new bishop of the Diocese of Malolos.

The 49-year-old bishop served as auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Cebu since his ordination to the episcopate in 2015.

He finished high school in Colegio de San Jose and entered San Carlos Seminary College in Cebu where he took his philosophical studies.

Villarojo studied theology and obtained his licentiate at the University of Santo Tomas. He finished his doctorate in philosophy at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome in 2001.

Ordained priest by Jaime Cardinal Sin on June 10, 1994, Villarojo served as Cardinal Ricardo Vidal’s secretary.

Villarojo will be the fifth bishop of Malolos, succeeding Bishop Jose Oliveros who died last year aged 71.
