Despite the errors from the Vatican Information Servce, the Holy Father has appointed Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, as archbishop of Naples, Italy and has appointed Cardinal Ivan Dias, archbishop of Bombay, India, as prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.

As a side note, Archbishop Dias is one of three cardinals who is either Portuguese or of Portuguese descent serving as prefect of Vatican congregations. Cardinal William Levada, Prefect of the Congregations for the Doctrine of the Faith and Cardinal Jose Sariva Martins, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints. Cardinal Levada is of Portuguese descent and Cardinal Sariva Martins is Portuguese.
