Pope Appoints Mgr Paul Tighe Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Communications

Dublin, November 30, 2007 (Zenit.org) - Benedict XVI named Monsignor Paul Tighe, director of the Office for Public Affairs for the Archdiocese of Dublin, as secretary of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications.

The Vatican announced today that Monsignor Tighe will assume the role of deputy to the president of the council, Archbishop Claudio Celli.

Commenting on his nomination, the Mgr Paul Tighe said, "Communication of the Gospel must be at heart of the ministry of a priest and I am pleased to be asked to work in the council that has a mandate to harness the potential of the media - new and old - as a means of evangelization."

A native of Navan, Ireland, Paul Tighe was ordained a priest of the Dublin Diocese in 1983. He studied moral theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, and was a professor beginning in 1990 at the Mater Dei Institute in Dublin. He was appointed head of the theology department in 2000.

In 2004, he was named the director of the Communications Office of the Archdiocese of Dublin. He also instituted the Office for Public Affairs, which aids communication between the diocese, government, public bodies and nongovernmental organizations in Ireland and Europe.
