Cardinal Erdo named apostolic visitor to pontifical university in Peru

.- Peru’s apostolic nunciature has announced that Cardinal Peter Erdo of Esztergom-Budapest, Hungary has been named apostolic visitor for the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru.

The announcement was made public by the university board. No date for the cardinal’s arrival was mentioned. 

In a statement, university officials reiterated their “willingness to dialogue” as expressed by the university assembly during its meeting on Sept. 23. During the meeting, the assembly rejected adopting the statutes put forth in the apostolic exhortation, “Ex Corde Ecclesiae,” thus endangering its status as a pontifical and Catholic institution.

Cardinal Peter Erdo is currently serving his second term as president of the Council of European Episcopal Conferences. He was re-elected last September at the council’s meeting in Albania.
