Archbishop Augustine Di Noia
Originally from New York, NY, in April 2002, the late Pope John Paul II appointed Father Di Noia to work at the Vatican as undersecretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. The congregation oversees and promotes the doctrine on the faith and morals in the Catholic world. In that appointment Father Di Noia served under then-Prefect Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.
He earned a doctorate from Yale University in 1980 and holds four theology degrees or certificates, including three from St. Stephen's College.
The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments does whatever pertains to the Apostolic See concerning the regulation and promotion of the sacred liturgy, primarily of the sacraments, without prejudice to the competence of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
