New office of Roman Curia will be formally unveiled tomorrow

CWN - October 11, 2010

A papal motu proprio formally establishing the new Pontifical Council for New Evangelization will be introduced on October 12, the Vatican press office has announced. The papal document, entitled Ubicumque et Semper, will set out the purpose and authority of the new pontifical council, which is designed to promote the spread of the Gospel especially in regions that were once predominantly Christian but have been heavily influenced by secularization.

Pope Benedict XVI revealed his plans for the new office in June, and appointed Archbishop Salvatore Fisichella to be its first president.
