Deo gratias!! Miles Christi has elected a new Superior General: Fr. Gonzalo (Stephen) Sanguinetti, MC
From November 15 through November 25, a number of priests of Miles Christi from around the world gathered in Argentina for the General Chapter of the Order. In the context of these meetings, on Tuesday, November 20 they elected Fr. Gonzalo (Stephen) Sanguinetti as the new Superior General of Miles Christi.
Fr. Gonzalo Sanguinetti was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1967. After graduating from Champagnat High School, run by the Marist Brothers, he studied Philosophy at the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina. Once he discerned his vocation to the priesthood and religious life, he joined Miles Christi at the time of its foundation and was sent to Rome for his Theological Studies. He was ordained a Priest in 1995.
For almost 20 years he served at the Miles Christi House of Formation in the Eternal City, first as Spiritual Director and then as Superior of the Community. During his years in Rome he obtained a Licentiate in Moral Theology.
In 2013 Fr. Stephen came to the United States to serve as Spiritual Director of the Miles Christi religious in the country and, later, as Superior of the Community in Michigan. While here, in 2016, he was appointed Assistant General of the Order and was called back to Argentina where he currently resides. Fr. Sanguinetti will serve as the Superior General of Miles Christi for the next 6 years.
