Vatican announces 6th Tagle appointment


Pope Francis has appointed Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle as a member of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life.

An article posted on the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) website said Tagle’s appointment in the Roman Curia was his sixth Vatican appointment.

“This is his membership in as many Vatican offices,” the Manila Archdiocesan Office of Communications said.

Aside from Tagle, the Pope has also appointed delegates of the synod such as Cardinal André Vingit-Trois, Archbishop of Paris, France and Cardinal Raymondo Damasceno Assis, archbishop of Aparecida, Brazil.

Tagle, who is a member of the Sacred Congregation for Catholic Education, was appointed by the Pope as a member of the Pontifical Council for the Laity in February.

He is also a member of the Permanent Council of the Synod of Bishops.

In 2012, he received two appointments: as member of the Pontifical Council for the Family and of the Pontifical Council for Migrants and Itinerant People.

Tagle also served as member of the XIII General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization in October 2012 and as vice-president of the Commission for the Message of the same assembly.
