Saint Louis University (SLU), Baguio City, formally installed REV. FR. GILBERT B. SALES, CICM, as the seventh university president, on 15 August 2015, held at the Prince Bernhard Gym, SLU main campus. Fr. Sales, 53, was a Filipino pioneer missionary to Mongolia sent by Pope John Paul II in 1992 and is the concurrent president of Saint Louis College – San Fernando, La Union. Fr. Sales brings with him exemplary missionary qualities and a distinct brand of educational leadership as he assumes the SLU presidency.

Fr. Sales’ presidency is committed to carrying on the CICM school apostolate of educating young people with a missionary orientation.  “My presidency,” announces Fr. Sales during his inaugural address, “will be driven by a whole-hearted commitment to uniting and integrating these two indispensable and wholly compatible strands of higher learning, namely: academic excellence and religious faith.”
