UN Nuncio Visits CNEWA Office

Archbishop Celestino Migliore, Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations, paid his first visit on 11 April to the New York office of Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA) since assuming his position earlier this year. Msgr. Robert L. Stern, Secretary General, briefed the Nuncio on the papal agency’s emergency relief efforts in Iraq as well as its long-term educational and development plans for the country. CNEWA, Msgr. Stern said, is working through the church’s network of bishops, priests, religious and laity to implement its recovery programs.

Archbishop Migliore was with the Vatican Secretariat of State before his appointment to the UN. He succeeded Archbishop Renato R. Martino who was named President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.
