CARDINAL LAGHI STEPS DOWN FROM EDUCATION CONGREGATION

        VATICAN (CWNews.com) -- Cardinal Pio Laghi has retired from his position as prefect of the Vatican's Congregation for Catholic Education. He is being replaced by Archbishop Zenon Grocholewski, the Polish-born bishop who was serving as prefect of the Supreme Tribunal for the Apostolic Signatura.

        Cardinal Laghi, who is 77 years old, became prefect of the Congregation for Catholic Education after a long career in the Vatican diplomacy. He had been the Pope's representative in Jerusalem from 1969 to 1974, then to Argentina from 1974 to 1980, and finally to the United States from 1984 to 1990. He was raised to the College of Cardinals by Pope John Paul II in June 1991.
