Pope Names Atlanta's Wilton Gregory To Be The Next Archbishop Of Washington D.C.

According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, Pope Francis named Atlanta Archbishop Wilton Gregory as the new head of the Catholic Church in Washington D.C.

The 71 year old becomes the first African-American to lead the most influential position in the US Church, and is likely to be made a cardinal eligible to vote on the next pope after Francis either dies or resigns.

Reuters reports that both of the previous two holders of the post have been involved with sexual abuse scandals.
