CLARIFYING RETIREMENT AGE OF BISHOPS IN CENTRAL CONFERENCES
Questions of law were asked at the Congo Central Conference about the retirement age of bishops. The Council took jurisdiction but made no ruling because it needs to have the minutes of the session to clarify the context of the questions.
The bishop prepared written rulings that were recorded in this “decision” and the Council notes that a brief was sent which challenged the written statement of the bishop with what was heard at the conference.
The Council kept jurisdiction and will hopefully get all the information it needs so it can rule at its November session.
