Pope Francis announced the names of 11 new cardinals on Sunday 12 January including Marriage Care’s president, Archbishop Vincent Nichols. He is the 11th Archbishop of Westminster to be made a Cardinal.
Mark Molden, Marriage Care’s Chief Executive said:“We were delighted to hear that our President Archbishop Vincent Nichols was made a Cardinal by Pope Francis. Marriage Care was established as a charity in 1946 to support families in the Catholic community whose relationships came under stress after the trauma and upheaval of World War II. We value our relationship with the Catholic Church and particularly with our President. We offer him our prayers and congratulations in his new responsibilities.”
