Four SVD Synodal Bishops
Visit Collegio del Verbo Divino

Taking a respite from their heavy schedule at the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, focused on the theme of "Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment,” the four SVD Synodal Bishops from Africa and Asia visited Collegio del Verbo Divino on October 11.

Present were Bishop Emmanuel Fianu, SVD of the Diocese of Ho, Ghana, Metropolitan Archbishop Zeferino Zeca Martins, SVD of the Archdiocese of Huambo, Angola, Bishop Leopoldo Jaucian, SVD from the Diocese of Bangued, Philippines, and Archbishop John Barwa, SVD of the Archdiocese of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar, India.

The Rector of the Collegio del Verbo Divino, Nicolas Espinosa, festively presented our Bishop confreres to the community with a sense of pride in having them with us.

A united thought was that our SVD Synodal Bishops are not only representing their respective episcopal conferences but in a way also representing our Society. The Synod theme on Youth is akin to the Priorities Ad Extra of the Society, which also emphasize the Youth.
