Biographical or Historical Information

The curia of the Diocese of Charleston is a governing body that assists the bishop in the administration of the diocese by creating a pastoral plan and exercising judicial authority. The council consists of institutions and persons appointment by the bishop.  In 2007, due to the absence of a bishop, an interregnum council was formed that served the administrative function of the curia.  In 2008, Robert E. Guglielmone was installed as bishop, which caused the interregnum council to expire.  Bishop Guglielmone reformed the curia in 2011.
