Singapore (Agenzia Fides) – He is appreciated for his incisive and persuasive preaching and especially for his blog "Breaking The Word": we are talking about Fr. Christopher Soh, the new Regional Superior of the Jesuits for the Malaysia-Singapore region (MAS).
Pastor of souls near and far, known as a blogger, Fr. Soh will start his work on November 8. Ordained a priest in 2005, professed his perpetual vows in the Society of Jesus in 2011. He studied at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and during those years of study he felt the vocation to the priesthood, engaging with the "Legion of Mary" and the Catholic Students Society. After the Ignatian experience, in 1994 he started his path in the Society of Jesus. After the novitiate in Singapore, he studied philosophy in the Philippines, then theology at the Jesuit School of Theology in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA). From 2012 to 2015 he was director of the Ignatian Spirituality Centre in Singapore, then pastor of St. Ignatius Church. (PA) (Agenzia Fides 26/10/2016)
