The Pallium it be presented to the Archbishop in his own Cathedral

The pallium (derived from the Roman pallium or palla, a woolen cloak; pl.: pallia or palliums) is an ecclesiastical vestment in the Catholic Church, originally peculiar to the pope, but for many centuries bestowed by him on metropolitans and primates as a symbol of the jurisdiction delegated to them by the Holy See. The Master of ceremonies to the Pope has announced that in future new Archbishops will still come to Rome on the 29th June for a ceremony, but the pallium will be presented to them by the Apostolic Nuncio in their own Cathedral. The aim is to emphasize the relationship of the bishop with his people, but also to proclaim collegiality. It is not a huge step but a sign of decentralisation.
