In the audience granted to me, due to the need to implement the new Apostolic Constitution Praedicate Evangelium with reference to the organization of the newly-constituted Dicastery for Evangelization and to the particular provisions regarding, on the one hand, the management of the Pontificial Mission Societies (art. 67) and, on the other, the administration of the assets destined for the missions (art. 68),
the HOLY FATHER
Has clarified and ordered that the Section for first evangelization and the new particular Churches of the Dicastery for Evangelization have two Adjunct Secretaries:
(a) the first, in the capacity of President of the Pontifical Mission Societies, responsible for the management of economic resources intended for missionary cooperation and for their equitable distribution;
(b) the second, in the capacity of Director of the special Office of the Dicastery responsible for the administration of the assets destined for the missions.
Both shall report directly to the Pro-Prefect for the Section for first evangelization and the new particular Churches of the Dicastery for Evangelization, to whom the representation of the Dicastery in economic affairs is attributed.
From the Vatican, 1 August 2022
Cardinal Luis Antonio G. Tagle
