Caritas International chooses new leader
CWN - May 26, 2011
Caritas International has elected a new leader. Michel Roy, the director of a French charity, will become the secretary-general of the international consortium of Catholic relief agencies.
Roy, who had worked with Secours Catholique, was elected to a 4-year term by delegates representing the Caritas International members. He replaces Lesley-Anne Knight, who leadership ended when the Vatican declined to approve her bid for a second term in office.
The Caritas International assembly taking place this week has been carefully watched because of the Vatican’s insistence that the group’s charitable work should promote a clear Catholic identity.
