2020 Appointments

2020 Appointments

Appointments notice 2020-2022

The start of the year saw fresh appointments within the Custody of St Anthony.

Having completed the 2019 Custody Chapter in October last year, and after much consultation, prayer and deliberation, our Custos, Friar Derrick Yap, announced new appointments to the friars on 25 Oct 2019.

The new appointments took effect on the 1 Jan 2020, and run until the end of 2022. Assignments of offices, along with movements of members within the communities take place once in three years, following a Custody Chapter or meeting.
