Last week the European bishops elected the new president of their commission, Italian Bishop Mariano Crociata.
Crociata, who leads the Catholic Diocese of Latina in the Lazio region of Italy, succeeds Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich.
The bishop delegates of the dioceses of the European Union elected Crociata in a March 22 vote during their spring plenary assembly.
Crociata, 70, will lead the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union (COMECE) until 2028. He is supported by four vice presidents.
