This morning, on the Feast of the Epiphany, Pope Benedict XVI named 22 new cardinals — including four with close ties to CNEWA.
The new cardinals include CNEWA’s Chair and Treasurer, Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York; Archbishop Thomas C. Collins of Toronto, who serves on the board for CNEWA Canada; Archbishop George Alencherry of Ernakulam-Angamaly, Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, who serves as a trustee for CNEWA India; and Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien, Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
The consistory for the creation of the cardinals will occur on 18 February.
Congratulations to all the cardinal-designates!
