Mgr Achille Glorieux

On 15 July 1960, the Sunday Examiner reported on the appointment of Mgr Achille Glorieux as one of five secretaries appointed to the Preparatory Commissions.

“For several years, he served as Apostolic Delegate for missions in Africa dependent on the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith and later as Apostolic Delegate to British East and West Africa,” the Examiner noted.

“Mgr. Glorieux, 50, was born in Lille, and was for a time ecclesiastical assistant of Permanent Committee for the Apostolate of the Laity. At present, he is director of the French edition of L’Osservatore Romano, and Rome correspondent for La Croix, the great Catholic daily published in Paris.”
