Society National President recognizes Father Pedro Villarroya, CM
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul recently held its Western Regional Conference in Everett, WA.
Among the highlights was the recognition of Father Pedro Villarroya, CM, Western Region and L.A. Council spiritual leader, and the 50th Anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood.
Joseph Flannigan, National President of the Society of St. Vincent DePaul, presented Father Pedro with a plaque and thanked him for his years of service to the Lord and the Society's outreach.
This was not a retirement celebration, as Father Pedro will continue to impact lives locally, throughout the west and beyond.
