The Roman Curia

The Roman Curia is the complex of Dicasteries and Institutes which help the Pope in the exercise of his supreme pastoral office for the good and service of the whole Church and of the particular Churches. It thus strengthens the unity of the faith and the communion of the people of God and promotes the mission proper to the Church in the world. (Pastor Bonus, art. 1)
