Bishop Soane Patita Paini Mafi

  • Class Year2000

  • Degree M.S. Pastoral Counseling

In 2015, Soane became the youngest Cardinal in the Catholic Church. He believes his years at Loyola helped equip him to be a pastoral leader. Heading a diocese of approximately 20,000 people (about the size of a large American parish), he is determined to use his post to encourage people to live lives of simplicity and humility, and to “go back to basics of good Christian family” as taught by the Catholic Church.
