The three members of this new collaborative leadership team will be: Paulist Fr. René Constanza as President; Paulist Fr. Frank Desiderio as Vice President; and Paulist Fr. Dave Dwyer as First Consultor.

They will take office on June 7.

Fr. René's election was announced January 31:

Fr. Frank, our next Vice President, has served as our First Consultor for the past eight years.

He previously served as president of Paulist Productions; director of The Paulist Center, Boston, MA; and as director of formation at our seminary in Washington, D.C.
