Pope Francis has appointed an American priest from Wisconsin as the new head of the Disciplinary Section of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

Pope Francis has appointed Father Tait Cameron Schroeder as head of office in the Disciplinary Section of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), the Holy See Press Office announced on May 7, 2022. The American theologian has worked in the service of the congregation since 2018. The CDF was restructured by the pope last February.

Originally from Madison in the United States, Father Schroeder was ordained in 2002, after years of study at the Pontifical Universities of the Angelicum and St. Anselm in Rome, where he specializes in sacramental theology. He then completed a doctorate in canon law at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross.
