Created through the passion and professional expertise of lay Catholics, since its launch Aleteia has been accompanied by the Pontifical Council for Social Communications and the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization. In communion with the Church’s Magisterium, Aleteia is open to working with the dicasteries of the Holy See, and also collaborates with bishops conferences and religious orders, congregations and communities, some of which are directly involved in the Board of Directors of the Foundation for Evangelization through the Media (FEM).
Bishop Christopher J. Coyne became bishop of the Diocese of Burlington, Vermont, a little over a year ago, arriving from Indiana where he was Bishop for the Southern Region of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. Born in Woburn, MA, Coyne was ordained to the priesthood in 1986 for the Archdiocese of Boston and received a Licentiate degree in Sacred Liturgy and a Doctorate in Sacred Liturgy from the Pontifical Athenaeum of Sant’Anselmo in Rome. Returning to Boston, he went on to serve in various diocesan roles, as well as a parish pastor and professor of Sacred Liturgy and Homiletics at St. John’s Seminary.
