Lay woman appointed to #3 post on pontifical council
CWN - January 21, 2010
An Italian lay woman, Flamania Giovanelli, has been appointed the undersecretary of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. She will be the first woman to serve in 3rd-ranking position in that pontifical council. An Australian lay woman, Rosemary Goldie, had served in the equivalent position at the Pontifical Council for the Laity from 1966 to 1976. An Italian nun, Sister Enrica Rosanna, currently holds a same post at the Congregation for Religious.
