Villegas Pinalitan Ng Davao Archbishop At Kaibigan Ni Pres. Duterte Na Si Arch. Romulo Valles Bilang Presidente Ng CBCP!


Davao Archbishop Romulo Valles is the new elected President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) on Saturday, July 8, after Archbishop Socrates Villegas finished his second and final term.

Archbishop Valles won the CBCP presidency during the CBCP's twice-a-year plenary meeting that began on Saturday.

Aside from Arch. Valles, Kalookan Bishop Pablo Virgilio David was also elected as vice president, and Palo Archbishop John Du as treasurer.

Arch. Valles stated his relationship with President Rodrigo Duterte to be "Very Okay".

The Davao archbishop is also celebrating his 66th birthday on Sunday, July 10.

Valles has been CBCP vice president since December 2013, alongside Villegas as president.

Born in Maribojoc, Bohol, Valles has been Davao archbishop since May 2012.

A graduate of the Pontificio Ateneo Sant' Anselmo in Rome, he has been a Catholic priest in Mindanao for the past 4 decades.

Before the Pope made him Davao archbishop in 2012, he became bishop of Kidapawan in 1997 then archbishop of Zamboanga in 2007.

Once Valles leads the CBCP, the Davao archbishop having known the President for years is seen to take a different approach toward President Duterte.
