Br. Benoît-Dominique de La Soujeole is the new Prior Provincial of the Province of Switzerland.

On Tuesday, 2 January 2023, the brethren of Switzerland gathered in a Provincial Chapter at the Monastery of Estavayer-le-Lac elected br. Benoît-Dominique de La Soujeole as Prior Provincial of the Province of Switzerland.

Fr. Benoît-Dominique, a son of the Province of Toulouse, was born in 1955. He received the Dominican habit in 1984. A doctor of dogmatic theology and Master of Sacred Theology, he was a professor at the Faculty of Theology of the University of Fribourg from 1999 to 2021.

In 2016, Pope Francis appointed him as an advisor to the Congregation for Catholic Education. He is a member of the Commission for the Intellectual Life of the Order.

He has served as prior of the Albertinum, the Dominican convent in Fribourg that is under the direct jurisdiction of the Master of the Order.

Fr. Benoît-Dominique is the author of numerous books, including Introduction au mystère de l’Eglise (2006), Paternités et fraternités spirituelles (2021) and Le mystère de la prédication (2021).

A man of simplicity and wisdom, he will bring to our Province the discernment and governance it needs to stimulate and promote Dominican life in Switzerland in a renewed way.
