Vatican City, Jun 5, 2021 / 05:30 am
Pope Francis on Saturday appointed a new apostolic nuncio to Canada.
The pope named Archbishop Ivan Jurkovič on June 5 to the position that had remained vacant since the previous nuncio, Archbishop Luigi Bonazzi, was posted to Albania in December 2020.
Jurkovič has served as the Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva since 2016.
The 68-year-old Slovenian archbishop has also acted as the Holy See’s representative to the World Trade Organization and the International Organization for Migration.
