Cardinal Turkson to head new Vatican dicastery for justice, peace, ‘care of creation’

ROME, August 31, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis has created a new super-dicastery for promoting Integral Human Development and appointed Cardinal Peter Turkson from Ghana as its Prefect.
The announcement comes only two weeks after the pope announced the formation of another major new department, the Dicastery for the Laity, the Family and Life, with American Bishop Kevin Farrell as its head.
“In all her being and actions, the Church is called to promote the integral development of the human person in the light of the Gospel,” Pope Francis wrote in a moto proprio, or legal decree issued at his own initiative, instituting the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development. “This development takes place by attending to the inestimable goods of justice, peace, and the care of creation.”
