Charles Scicluna officially named Malta’s next Archbishop

Times of Malta

A reform of the Curia is high on Archbishop-elect Charles Scicluna’s to do list, and he is not excluding a change in personnel.

Speaking during a news conference at the Curia in Floriana during which he was officially named Malta’s next Archbishop, Mgr Scicluna said expert reports had been drafted on a review of the Maltese Church’s top personnel and he would be looking into them.

He said he wanted to have youth around him but also would not disregard experience and those who had already done so much to help the church in Malta.

The Archbishop said he had already been thinking very deeply about this.

“I wouldn’t call them sleepless nights but my sleep hasn’t been as peaceful as it had been. The Curia needs restructuring,” he said.
