Sr Raffaella Petrini, first woman appointed as Secretary General of the Governorate
Pope Francis has appointed Angelicum professor, Sr. Raffaella Petrini of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist (F.S.E.), as the Secretary General of the government of Vatican City State. Sr. Raffaella is the first woman to hold this position.
Her appointment is a source of joy for our university, since Sr. Raffaella obtained her doctorate from the Angelicum’s faculty of Social Sciences in 2015 and she currently lectures in that same faculty.
On behalf of the whole Angelicum community, we would like to congratulate Sr. Raffaella, and assure her of our support and prayers.
Sr. Raffaella Petrini, belongs to the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist Congregation, and was born in 1969.
She currently teaches Welfare Economics and Sociology of Economic Processes at the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Angelicum.
She holds a Doctorate in Social Sciences from the Angelicum in Rome; a Master of Science in Organization Behavior, Barney School of Business, University of Hartford (CT), USA, and a Degree in Political Science (specializing in Industrial Relations) from LUISS in Rome.
Congratulations from your Angelicum family and best wishes for your new appointment!
