SPAIN | The Bishop of Córdoba, Monsignor Demetrio Fernández, has appointed the priest D. Antonio Prieto Lucena vicar general of the diocese and moderator of the curia, replacing Monsignor Francisco Jesús Orozco Mengíbar (who has been consecrated as bishop of the diocese of Guadix, Granada).
Antonio Prieto (born in La Rambla, Córdoba, in 1974) was ordained a priest in 2000. He holds a degree in Marriage and Family Theology and a doctorate in Moral Theology. In 2004 he was appointed vice-chancellor of the major seminary «San Pelagio», and since three years later he has been acting as rector. In addition to his other occupations, Prieto has been part of the TeenStar’s multidisciplinary team of professionals as a chaplain, actively participating in numerous seminarios as a speaker.
From these lines we express our joy at his appointment and we wish him luck in his new assignment.
