Wilton Gregory, Archbishop of Washington since 2019, is seen as progressive with views similar to those of Pope Francis

Pope Francis said he would appoint 13 new Roman Catholic cardinals, including the first African-American cardinals.

The Pope announced the appointment of the 13 cardinals of eight nationalities, in a surprise speech from his window overlooking Saint Peter’s Square in Rome on Sunday.

Wilton Daniel Gregory, 72-year-old Progressive Archbishop of Washington DC, will be one of them.

The cardinals will be imitated at a ceremony in the Vatican on 28 November.
