Pope Francis named Maralit Bishop-elect of Boac last Dec. 31.

A priest from the Archdiocese of Lipa since 1995, he has served in many pastoral and administrative positions and was parish priest of Alitagtag, Batangas at the time of his appointment.

Dozens of bishops and archbishops have already confirmed their intention to concelebrate Maralit’s ordination at the San Sebastian Cathedral in Lipa City on March 13 and on his installation at the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Boac on March 17.

Manila Archbishop Emeritus Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales will be principal ordaining prelate along with Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto, Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines, and Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles.

The 45-year old bishop-elect studied philosophy at St. Francis de Sales Major Seminary in Lipa City.

He also studied and earned a licentiate in Sacred Theology at the Universidad de Navarra in Pamplona, Spain. Likewise, he obtained a licentiate in Church History from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome. (CBCPNews)
