“After an extensive search in the US and abroad, and much prayerful discernment, the board of directors is pleased to announce that they have selected the team of Fr. Shenan Boquet and Fr. Peter West to carry on the legacy of HLI’s founder, the late Fr. Paul Marx. Fr. Boquet brings a great breadth of leadership and pastoral experience and passion for the defense of life and family to the position as president. Fr. West has a long and distinguished record of advocacy for life and family both in parish life and with Priests for Life, and was uniquely suited to head up HLI’s missionary work as vice president for missions.

“Both Fr. Boquet and Fr. West come to HLI with the full support of their respective bishops, and we are grateful to both bishops for allowing them to serve HLI. We are confident that under the leadership of Fr. Boquet and the strategic guidance of Fr. West, HLI will continue to be the leading international pro-life organization.

“Further, HLI is truly blessed to have had Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro-Carámbula at the helm during a year of transition. We are deeply grateful for all Monsignor was able to accomplish in his short time as interim president, and while he’ll be missed at HLI headquarters, we are pleased that he will continue to serve HLI’s mission as he resumes leadership of the Rome office.”

Both Fr. Boquet and Fr. West will assume their new responsibilities on September 1, 2011. To learn more about Fr. Boquet, click here; and for more about Fr. West, click here.

    HLI could not have picked a better leader!! Fr. Boquet is a wonderful and holy priest! HLI’s gain is Houma’s loss.

  • God bless Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro-Carámbula. His email updates were informative and rich with the truth of the Church. Our prayers go with him.

  • Congratulations to both of our new leaders. My prayers are with you, and may the blessings of the Holy trinity be with you both and the prayers of Mary our beloved Mother protect you, from all the wiles of the enemy. May St. Michael, also protect you both against the
    wickedness and snares of the enemy.

    Sincerely in JMJ, your sister, Janet K. N.Y.
