Cardinal Vincent appointed to Pontifical Council for Christian Unity
Pope Francis has appointed Cardinal Vincent Nichols, one of the Presidents of Churches Together in England, to the department of the Roman Curia which oversees Christian unity.
Today, 22 May 2014, Cardinal Vincent was appointed to both the Congregation for Clergy and the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity –
which is also responsible for the Vatican's dialogue with Jews. This means he is now a member of four bodies of the Roman Curia, the other two being the Congregation for Bishops (which oversees the appointments of bishops across most of the world) and the Congregation for Oriental Churches, tasked with relations with Eastern Catholics.
Listen to Cardinal Vincent talking (in 2009) about the importance of praying for Christian Unity.
