We extend a hearty welcome to our new Director, Fr. Rodney J. Copp, J.C.L.
Fr. Copp will remain pastor of St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Waltham in addition to his new role as the Director for all four Pontifical Mission Societies as of June 14.
"I am honored by the confidence that Cardinal Sean is showing in me to serve in this important position," said Fr. Copp
"It is a privilege to follow in the footsteps of Fr. Tom Kopp, who has done so much good in this area, and to be able to work closely with our missions in places such as Latin America, Asia, Africa and elsewhere."
As one chapter enters the history books here in Boston, another begins.
We pray that this one will be as fruitful for the Missions as all the others before them have been!
