The Curia

The term “curia” comes from ancient Rome. It meant Senate Chamber and the senators t. Gradually, it became the symbol of the government of the city and the world (“Urbi et Orbi”). The Church adopted the terms “Roman Curia” for the government of the universal Church and “diocesan curia” for the government of each diocese.

According to Canon Law, “The diocesan curia consists of those institutions and persons which assist the Bishop in the governance of the whole diocese, especially in guiding pastoral action, in caring for the administration of the diocese, and in exercising judicial power. “(Can. 469)
