Father Ronald Witherup, SS elected superior general of Sulpicians
Father Witherup succeeds Father Lawrence B. Terrien, SS, S.T.D., who completed his second six-year term as superior general.
Witherup said his priorities will be to promote unity, communicate the pedagogy of the Society, and to recruit new members. The Sulpicians, formally known as the Society of the Priests of St. Sulpice, are an international society of diocesan priests focused on the education and formation of priests and future priests. Bishops want “to keep their own priests because they all have needs in ministry,” said Father Witherup, noting that priests must have the permission of their bishop to become Sulpicians. “So it’s a challenge to recruit new members.” Father Witherup most recently served for more than a decade as provincial of the religious community’s Baltimore-based US province. The Sulpicians also sponsor St. Patrick’s Seminary and University in Menlo Park, CA. He served as president of the Conference of Major Superiors of Men (CMSM) from 2003-2005. Worldwide, there are 320 Sulpicians, 71 of whom serve in the society’s U.S. province. The priests minister in approximately 13 countries, with the society growing fastest in Africa and South America––areas where religious vocations are flourishing, Father Witherup said.
