The Roman Catholic Church on Friday ended a schism that had divided it for three decades, as followers of the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre were welcomed back into the fold. Vatican representative Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos declared the dispute officially over during an evening ceremony in Campos, 430 miles northeast of Sao Paulo. Followers of the ultraconservative Lefebvre, known as "traditionalists," rejected the liberalizing reforms of the 1962-65 Second Vatican Council.
