Vatican Nominations announced today

Announced today:

Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sidney, has been nominated a Member of the Congregation for Bishops. So he will have a vote on the appointment of bishops.

And Dr Edward Peters, Professor of Canon Law in the "Edmund Cardinal Szoka Chair" at the Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit, USA has been appointed an "expert" for the forthcoming 13th General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. He also blogs at In the Light of the Law.


  1. Dr. Ralph Martin, also of Sacred Heart, is going as a peritus, too, and our Fr. Chas Canoy will be a staff aide there, so it's neat day for Michigan. Oremus pro invicem.

  2. And Dr Petroc Willey and Dr Caroline Farey, both of the Maryvale Institute in Birmingham are also appointed as 'expert', they are the only two from the UK.
