Jesuit superior steps in to head umbrella group for male religious superiors

Catholic World News - May 20, 2013

Father Adolfo Nicolas, the worldwide leader of the Jesuit order, has been named the president of the International Union of Superiors General (USIG), the umbrella group for representatives of men's religious orders.

Father Nicolas, who was the vice president of USIG, replaces Archbishop José Rodriguez Carballo, who was named in April as secretary of the Vatican's Congregation for Religious. Archbishop Carballo had been president of USIG for only a year; previously Father Pascual Chavez Villanueva, a Salesian priest, had served two terms as president.
