Rome, October 3, 2011. Today Fr. Alvaro Corcuera, LC, with the consent of the general council and with authorization from the pontifical delegate, has named Fr. Jaime Rodriguez, LC, to be the new general secretary of the Legionaries of Christ. As has already been announced, Fr. Evaristo Sada, LC, is at the end of the six-year term, which began in 2005.

Fr. Jaime Rodriguez, LC, was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1976 and was ordained a priest in 2008. He is an alumnus of Everest Academy, a Legionary high school in Madrid. In 1994, he entered the novitiate in Salamanca, Spain, where he also did his studies in classical humanities. For three years he did youth work in Valencia, Spain, mentoring at the Faro Club, a Legionary-sponsored youth group, as well as at the Cumbres School, a Legionary high school in the area. From 1995 to 2001, he directed summer camps at Santa Maria del Monte near Avila, Spain. He obtained his licentiate in philosophy and theology from the Pontifical Regina Apostolorum College in Rome. Since 2005 he has lived and worked in the Legionaries’ General Directorate in Rome.

As stipulated in the constitutions of the Legionaries of Christ, the general secretary has no authority on his own. His task is to assist the general director of the congregation in everything that has to do with issues like official correspondence, council meetings, calendars, and appointments.
