The Reverend Thomas J Euteneur steps down from his position as Human Life International President
We at European Life Network wish to express our good wishes to the Reverend Thomas J Euteneuer who has stepped down from the position of President of Human Life International (HLI) after nearly 10 years of meritorious service. Fr. Euteneuer has been asked by his Bishop to return to his Diocese in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The HLI board which is one of the largest pro-life organisations in the world with 105 branches issued a statement thanking Fr. Euteneuer for his leadership, hard work and dedication in carrying on the legacy of Fr. Paul Marx the founder of the organisation.
The statement says that during his tenure as President Fr. Euteneuer traveled more than one million miles as a pro-life missionary to the world.
While Fr. Euteneuer's leadership at HLI and his influence on the pro-life movement around the world will be greatly missed, the statement continues, HLI are blessed to have gifted staff who will continue to carry out our mission while a search for a new president is undertaken.
Msgr. Ignacio Barreiro Carámbula, director of HLI's office in Rome, will assume Fr. Euteneuer's responsibilities until such time as a permanent replacement is named.
