New Territorial Director for North America
Fr. John Connor LC to head Legion’s North American Territory

Fr. John Connor LC

Fr. John Connor LC is appointed territorial director for the Legion of Christ’s North American Territory, effective May 1, 2014.

The Legion’s general director, Fr. Eduardo Robles Gil LC, made the announcement April 12, in a letter to all Legionaries in the territory.  Fr. Connor replaces Fr. Luis Garza LC, who has served as the territory’s director for the past three years; his new assignment will be announced later.

“I’m humbled by this assignment and ask for the prayers of everyone in the North American Territory,” said Fr. John.  “I especially want to thank Fr. Luis for his leadership and example of faith and perseverance over the past several years.”

Fr. Connor was ordained to the priesthood in 2001. He has worked in several different ministries, including dean of discipline at the Everest Academy in Madrid, Spain.  He worked in the development office of the Legion for several years and from 2004 - 2009 was Local Coordinator of Apostolate for Regnum Christi in New York.  He helped found and direct the Lumen Institute, served as assistant to the territorial director for apostolate, and was director of the former Atlanta Territory.  He will retain his current role as head of the territory’s Institutional Advancement Office.
