Rome Newsroom, 15 February, 2023 / 2:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Pope Francis on Wednesday created a new independent supervisory commission for the Diocese of Rome.
The commission will meet once a month and report directly to the pope in a yearly meeting.
The oversight committee is part of the pope’s reform of the governance of the Rome Diocese, a reorganization that centralizes more of the diocese’s activities under his authority.
In a document issued Feb. 15, Pope Francis established norms for the commission and nominated its first members.
The six-member commission is intended to act as internal oversight on financial, administrative, and legal issues for the Diocese of Rome, as stated in the apostolic constitution issued Jan. 6.
