Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle will record a video interview with Father Stephen Newton CSC, to be presented to the AUCP Assembly, in lieu of his personal appearance . Pope Francis has appointed Cardinal Tagle, Pro-Prefect of the Dicastery for Evangelization, as his Special Envoy to the National Eucharistic Congress of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to be held in Lubumbashi from June 4-11, 2023. For this reason, he will not be with us in San Diego.
