The Missionaries of God’s Love (MGL) priests and brothers announce the election of Fr Stephen Fletcher MGL as their new Moderator.
Fr Fletcher is currently serving in the MGL’s Seminary in Melbourne, and will take up the role of Moderator immediately.
The election of a new Moderator is a significant milestone in the history of the MGL’s. This election marks the conclusion of the leadership of the MGL’s founder, Fr Ken Barker. Fr Ken has served as Moderator since founding the Congregation in Canberra in 1986, and has been re-elected moderator for 2 consecutive terms since its recognition as a religious institute of diocesan rite in 2014 by the Holy See. According to the statutes of the MGL’s a Moderator can only serve for two consecutive terms before a new Moderator must be elected.
