Vatican City, Apr 12, 2017 / 11:57 am America/Denver (CNA).
On Wednesday, the Vatican announced that EWTN’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw has been named by Pope Francis as a consultor to the Vatican Secretariat for Communications.
“I am extremely humbled and honored by the Holy Father’s appointment,” Warsaw said in a statement April 12. “This is a tremendous recognition of the role which EWTN plays in the life of the Church throughout the world. I am grateful to Pope Francis for his confidence and look forward to serving the universal Church in this post.”
The announcement of Warsaw’s appointment was made in an April 12 communique from the Vatican, along with the names of 12 other new consultors.
The Secretariat for Communications was established by Pope Francis in 2015. One of its primary responsibilities is the restructuring and consolidation of the Holy See’s various communications outlets.
In his role as consultor, Warsaw will help advise the Pope and the Holy See on media and communications matters.
