On December 16, 2013 Pope Francis announced that he had confirmed Sulpician Cardinal Marc OUELLET, pss, as Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops. At the same time, the Holy Father announced various changes in the membership of that dicastery and confirmed other members, as well as numerous consultors. For example, Cardinal Donald WUERL, the Archbishop of Washington, was also named as a member of the Congregation.

The reform of the Curia under Pope Francis is thus evolving day by day. The entire Society of the Priests of Saint Sulpice extends warm congratulations to Cardinal Ouellet! Thank you for your continued service to the Church.
