Fr. Cerilo Casicas, currently the Director of Pastoral Formation and professor at the Saint John Vianney Theological Seminary in Cagayan de Oro City is now the new bishop of Marbel in South Cotabato.
Pope Francis appointed the 51-year old Casicas who is a native of Duero, Bohol succeeding Bishop Dinauldo Gutierrez who served the diocese of South Cotabato for more than 35 years.
It is also a sort of homecoming for Casicas since he was ordained a priest in Marbel on October 27, 1994.
