Archbishop Philip Tartaglia
Pope Francis has confirmed that Archbishop Philip Tartaglia’s request for an auxiliary bishop has been granted.
The Archbishop made the request following his health scare at the beginning of the year and it is expected the new auxiliary will be in place around Easter 2016.
Archbishop Tartaglia has requested nominations for the new role and this process will continue until the end of the summer when the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Antonio Mennini, will recommend three names to Rome.
Please remember to pray for all our clergy.
