Filipino prelate named to leading Vatican diplomatic post

Catholic World News - July 02, 2014

Pope Francis has appointed Archbishop Bernardito Auza, the apostolic nuncio to Haiti, as the Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations.

Archbishop Auza succeeds Archbishop Francis Chullikatt, who was appointed to the post in 2010 and whose new position was not announced.

Archbishop Auza, 55, was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Talibon (Philippines) in 1985 and has served in various diplomatic positions in Madagascar, Bulgaria, Albania, and the Secretariat of State. Prior to his appointment to Haiti and episcopal ordination in 2008, he served as first counselor to the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations.
