The Council of Cardinals (C6) will have an online meeting on Tuesday afternoon.

Matteo Bruni, Director of the Holy See Press Office, said the meeting's participants will also discuss how to continue the meetings amid the ongoing health crisis.

The Council of Cardinals held its 33rd meeting from 17 to 19 February this year. Subsequent meetings have not been held due to the ongoing Covid-19 health crisis.

During the February meeting, Cardinals Pietro Parolin, Óscar A. Rodríguez Maradiaga, Reinhard Marx, Sean Patrick O’Malley, Guiseppe Bertello, and Oswald Gracias began the phase of in-depth reading and revision of the draft of the new Apostolic Constitution on the Roman Curia, which, once approved, will replace the Constitution Pastor Bonus promulgated by Pope Saint John Paul II.
