Father Andrew Liaugminas '06 has been appointed to serve as an official for the doctrinal section of the Holy See’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
Liaugminas, a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago, will start his position in Rome later this summer and serve there for five years.
“It came as a surprise to me,” Liaugminas told Chicago Catholic. “After praying over this, I saw that it was the Lord’s will. There was a real sense of the Holy Spirit being in this call to service."
Liaugminas majored in Catholic studies, philosophy and theology at St. Thomas.
