Fr Michal Paluch, the New Rector Magnificus of the Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas, Rome has assumed his new office today, 13 September 2017. He took his oath of office by making the Profession of Faith. This follows his nomination by the Master of the Order, fr Bruno Cador, the approval by the Congregation for Catholic Education and his subsequent appointment.
Fr Michal took his oath of office in the Chapter Room of the Convent of Santa Sabina. The same place where the two Polish Dominicans, St Hyacinth and Blessed Ceslaus received the habit from the hands of St Dominic. This is symbolic since fr Michal is a Polish brother.
Present at the oath taking were; the Master of the Order, fr Bruno Cador, members of the General Council of the Order and some friars of the convent.
Fr Michal will be in office for a term of 4years.
