Featured Term (selected at random):

CONSISTORY

An ecclesiastical court, especially an assembly of cardinals for purposes of deliberation, presided over by the Pope. A papal consistory is secret if only cardinals are present, semi-public if bishops also participate, and public if other prelates are called to the meeting. (Etym. Latin consistere, to stand together.)

If I'm not mistaken a consistory was just held or is planned.
