The AFP is reporting that a native of Detroit, Joseph William Tobin, has been appointed secretary of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life.

The prefect of that congregation is Cardinal Franc Rodé.

Tobin was previously named in May as one of a team of bishops and religious charged by the Vatican to conduct an Apostolic Visitation in Ireland. A Redemptorist, Tobin was also superior general of his order from 1997-2009.
