Rev. Msgr. Fernando Ocáriz, Vice Grand Chancellor of the University, was nominated Auxiliary Vicar for the Prelature of Opus Dei.
Taking his position as Vicar General for the Prelature is the rev. Msgr. Mariano Fazio, already rector of the University from 2002 to 2008 and, previous to that, first deacon of the Faculty of Communication (1996-1999).
Msgr. Ocáriz is a professor emeritus of the Faculty of Theology.
The academic community unites in pray as requested by the Bishop Prelate of Opus Dei and Grand Chancellor of the University, Msgr. Javier Echevarría, 82 years old, in a letter which communicates the appointments, in order "to give a renewed apostolic dynamism to the work of Opus Dei, to the service of the Church and all souls."
