Beginning in July 2006, [Fr. Richard Vega] is to assume the presidency of the National Federation of Priest Councils (NFPC), a group that represents 26,000 U.S. parish priests serving in 125 dioceses. Learn more about Fr. Vega HERE.
As far as I can tell, the NFPC is not known for its uncompromising fidelity to Rome, as evidenced by carefully nuanced statements regarding optional celibacy for priests (the NFPC favors dialogue on the subject in spite of the clear teaching of Vatican II, Paul VI and John Paul II) and the election of Cardinal Ratzinger as pope.
