Fr Vivian Boland OP, of the Irish Dominican Province, was recently appointed as 'vicar' of the Master of the Order.
As 'vicar', Fr Vivian is the principal assistant to the Master General, Fr Bruno Cadoré OP.
Fr Vivian is originally from Dublin and entered the Order in 1971.
After priestly ordination in 1978 he studied at the University of Edinburgh, the Angelicum and at the Gregorian University.
His pastoral work has been not just in Ireland, but also in our mission in Trinidad & Tobago and in England.
