Archbishop J. Augustine DiNoia, O.P.
Woo Hoo!! \0/ \0/ \0/
The Holy See has announced that my brother, Very Rev. Augustine DiNoia, OP, has been appointed Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. Fr. DiNoia had served the Holy See as Undersecretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
As is customary, Fr. DiNoia will be consecrated as an Archbishop, to serve in his role as Secretary of the Congregation. He will be made the titular archbishop of Oregon City. His ordination will be on Saturday, July 11, 2009 (the Memorial of St. Benedict) at 2:00pm at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC.
This is an honor, not only for the very Rev. DiNoia, but for Dominicans, Americans, and the Angelicum.
