Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization

Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President of the Pontifical Council, (sitting on the Holy Father's right) met with, Bishop Pierre-Olivier Tremblay, and Dennis and Angelina Girard, Directors of the Marian Devotional Movement early in 2021 to discuss the Confraternity renewal strategy through Marian shrines. He bestowed his apostolic blessing and invited them to speak at the next International Meeting of Shrines in 2022. The Holy Father transferred the competences for shrines to the PCPNE on February 11th, 2018, the 160th anniversary of the apparitions at Lourdes. View the apostolic letter HERE
