The Vatican's Congregation for Catholic Education issued Wednesday three new instructions on ecclesiastical institutions of higher education.
Archbishop Vincenzo Zani, the congregation's secretary, told Vatican News that the instructions sought to strengthen the worldwide network of ecclesiastical institutions.
The instructions state that ecclesiastical institutions of higher education must apply to the congregation when seeking a change regarding affiliation, aggregation or incorporation. The congregation will then issue a decree approving the change ad quinquennium experimenti gratia (for a five-year trial period).
