Oblate priest in Philippines named 2011 Aquino Fellow

The U.S. Embassy to the Philippines has named an Oblate priest a 2011 Aquino Fellow for his outstanding work in journalism.

Oblate Father Eduardo Vasquez was chosen for his video documentary work in troubled Maguindanao province. Our friends at UCA News have a great photo of Father Vazquez at work as well as a story about him.

Look for Father Vasquez in the United States: As an Aquino Fellow, he will participate in the International Visitor Leadership Program. He and other fellows will spend three weeks in the States, meeting with American counterparts, learning about the government and experiencing the country’s cultural and social life.
