Fr. Flavio Bravo, SJ, Named President of Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola in Puerto Rico

March 21, 2016 — Father Flavio I. Bravo, SJ, has been appointed president of Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Fr. Bravo began the new role at the Jesuit all-male high school earlier this month.

“The Colegio San Ignacio has a long and illustrious history of serving the San Juan community, educating young men who are ‘Strong in Faith,’ well equipped to meet the challenges of contemporary life,” said Father Ronald A. Mercier, SJ, provincial of the Jesuits’ Central and Southern Province. “Fr. Bravo, working with the board of trustees and the whole school community, will help that legacy grow even stronger.”

Fr. Bravo has served as the superior of the Jesuit community of Puerto Rico since July 31, 2015.

A native of Nicaragua, Fr. Bravo entered the Society of Jesus in 1992. He was ordained in 2005 and pronounced final vows in 2014.

After ordination, he was assigned to Strake Jesuit College Preparatory in Houston in 2005, serving as chaplain, director of pastoral ministry and rector until his appointment as superior of the Jesuit Community of Puerto Rico.

Colegio San Ignacio de Loyola offers a comprehensive Catholic college preparatory education for grades 7-12. The school works to develop young men of competence, conscience, compassion and commitment to justice. 

Jesuits in Puerto Rico serve in many ministries in addition to Colegio San Ignacio, including two parishes, a grade school, pastoral ministry and retreat direction. The Jesuits of Puerto Rico became part of the USA Central and Southern Province of the Society of Jesus in 2014. [Source: Central and Southern Province]
