“Praedicate Evangelium”, the new Apostolic Constitution of the Roman Curia, was promulgated by Pope Francis on the Solemnity of St Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, March 19, 2022.
The Holy Father Francis promulgated the text of the Apostolic Constitution “Praedicate Evangelium on the Roman Curia and its Service to the Church in the World”, which will enter into force on June 5, 2022, the Solemnity of Pentecost.
The Holy See Press Office explained that “with the coming into force of this Apostolic Constitution, the Apostolic Constitution Pastor Bonus is fully abrogated and replaced, and the reform of the Roman Curia is thus completed.”
A press conference will be held on Monday, 21 March, at 11:30 am, at the Holy See Press Office for the presentation of the new Apostolic Constitution with Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints; Bishop Marco Mellino, Secretary of the Council of Cardinals; and Professor Gianfranco Ghirlanda, SJ, Professor Emeritus at the Pontifical Gregorian University’s Faculty of Canon Law.
