Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle and Cardinal Beniamino Stella are the newest members of the Order of Bishops within the College of Cardinal.

Pope Francis has elevated Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle to the rank of Cardinal-Bishop.

The appointment was made in an audience granted to Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra, Substitute for General Affairs for the Secretariat of State, on 14 April 2020. In naming Cardinal Tagle to the Order of Bishops, Pope Francis made him equal in all respects to those Cardinals with suburbicarian Churches.

Cardinal Tagle has served as Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples since February 2020.

The Holy Father has also promoted Cardinal Beniamino Stella, Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy, to the Order of Cardinal-Bishops, granting him the “title” of the suburbicarian Church of Porto-Santa Rufina.
