Canon 247

1. The protosyncellus and the syncelli are freely appointed by

the eparchial bishop and can freely be removed by him without

prejudice to can. 215, 1 and 2. 2. The protosyncellus and

the syncellus are to be celibate presbyters unless the particular

law of their Church sui iuris has established otherwise, insofar

as it is possible, they should be from the clergy enrolled in the

eparchy, not less than thirty years of age, have a doctorate or

licentiate or at least be expert in some sacred science, of sound

doctrine, uprightness, prudence and experience in handling matters. 3. The eparchial bishop is not to commit the office of

protosyncellus or syncellus to his blood relatives up to the

fourth degree inclusive. 4. The eparchial bishop can take the

protosyncellus or syncelli from another eparchy, even of another

Church sui iuris, but with the consent of their eparchial bishop.
