34 new archbishops to receive pallium on June 29

Catholic World News - June 25, 2013

The Vatican has released a list of the 34 new metropolitan archbishops who will receive the pallium from Pope Francis on June 29, the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.

Each year on that feast, the archbishops who have been appointed in the preceding year travel to Rome to receive the pallium, a white woolen vestment worn around the neck to symbolize the archbishop’s authority and his union with the Holy See.

This year 34 new metropolitans are expected in Rome for the June 29 ceremony. One other prelate, Archbishop Francois Xavier Le Van Hong of Hue, Vietnam, will be unable to make the trip, and will receive the pallium in his own archdiocese.

The prelates to receive the pallium at the Vatican are:
