The Office for the Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff on Friday announced that Pope Francis has scheduled the Ordinary Public Consistory for the creation of 14 new cardinals in the Vatican on June 28 and 29.
The office says the Pope made the declaration on Sunday, May 20.
It adds that the evening ceremony in St Peter’s Basilica will include the imposition of the cardinal’s red hat, the consignment of the ring and the assignment of the title or Diaconate.
Courtesy visits to the new cardinals are scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. the same day.
The Holy Father will on June 29 preside over a Mass in St Peter's Square on the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, the patrons of Rome.
During the Mass, the Pontiff will bless the sacred Pillion which will be sent to new metropolitan archbishops he appointed during the past year.
