Cardinal Advincula installed as new Manila archbishop

Jose F. Cardinal Advincula was installed as the new archbishop of Manila in a ceremony held at the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Intramuros on Thursday.

Cardinal Advincula was appointed by Pope Francis as the 33rd Archbishop of Manila on March 25. He was also among the 13 cardinals from eight countries appointed by Pope Francis last October 2020.

He was previously assigned as the Archbishop of Capiz.

The ceremony included the solemn liturgical reception of Cardinal Advincula, the reading of the Apostolic Letter from Pope Francis, the seating at the cathedral, and the renewal of the priestly promises of the clergy of Manila to the new Archbishop.
