The Capitular Friars of the Province of the Netherlands have just elected fr Ren L. Dinklo as their new provincial. The election has been confirmed by the Master of the Order, fr Bruno Cador and fr Ren has accepted.
fr Ren was born in 1965, made his first profession of religious vows in 1994 and was ordained to the priesthood in 2005. He worked briefly with the government before joining the Order. In the Order, he studied theology at the University of Nijmegen.
Since his ordination, he has been working at Zwolle as the pastor of the parish and the superior of the community. He lives in the community with brothers who have spent their entire lives working for God through the Order and are now retired. He has also been a member of the Provincial Council and the Financial and Economic Advisory Board.
Fr Ren is the youngest brother in his province and a sign of hope for the future. We wish him God guidance during his tenure.
