Pope Benedict XVI has appointed Dr Petroc Willey as a consultor to the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelisation.

Dr Willey, deputy director at Maryvale Higher Institute of Religious Sciences, is one of six lay Catholics named to the 15-member list of consultors with the task of advising the recently formed Vatican council.

Consultors are available to offer advice on various issues and participate in various meetings.

A spokesman for the institute said: “This appointment is an honour and affirmation of the highest regard and speaks not only to the tireless efforts of Dr Willey but also to all of those who have served with and supported Maryvale Institute over the years.”

The council was established to promote the new evangelisation throughout the Church.
