Russian Catholics to get new Apostolic Administrator
He will replace Bishop Tadeush Kondrusevich, who has been assigned a job in the Belarus capital Minsk.
“Giornale” says the decision was approved by the Patriarch of Moscow. It is expected to be announced officially later this week.
The Roman Catholic Church in Russia has four dioceses. The head of the diocese of the Holy Virgin in Moscow, the Apostolic Administrator for the North of European Russia, also chairs the Catholic Bishops’ Conference.
