This feast of SS. Peter and Paul, Pope Benedict XVI will bestow the pallium on 38 metropolitan archbishops including Angelicum alumus:

Most Rev. Jerome Listecki of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, U.S.A.

Most Rev. Peter Smith of the Archdiocese of Southwark, U.K.

The Vatican annouced today that the Mass in which the prelates will receive the honor will take place at 9:30 a.m. on June 29, 2010.

The pallium is a white band embroidered with six black crosses and worn over the shoulders. Worn by the Pope and by metropolitan archbishops, the pallium symbolizes authority and expresses the special bond between the bishops and the Roman Pontiff.
