List of Newly Appointed Cardinals

( [email protected] ) Oct 22, 2003 09:38 AM EDT

Pope John Paul II installed 30 new cardinals as well as one unnamed prelate on Tuesday, Oct. 21. The new appointments bring the body that will elect a new Pope to a record 135. The diversity of the body reflects what the Pope described as the variety of races and cultures which make up the Christian people.



The consistory saw the appointment of Ghana and Sudan's first ever cardinals; Nigeria now has two. The first ever cardinal from the tribal community of India also received a red hat - as did archbishops from Vietnam, Poland, the United States and Guatemala.
