New Bishop for the Diocese of Columbus
We have been notified that His Holiness Pope Francis has appointed the Most Reverend Robert J. Brennan, currently Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Center, New York, as the 12th Bishop of Columbus. He succeeds Bishop Frederick F. Campbell, whose resignation and retirement, has been accepted by the Holy Father.
The following You Tube link is a great introduction to Bishop Brennan. It was produced by the Diocese of Rockville Centre and is titled, “Sending Forth a Shepherd.”
Bishop Brennan will be installed as Bishop of Columbus during a Mass on Friday, March 29, 2019. Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Campbell as Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Columbus, and he will continue to lead the Diocese until the Mass of Installation.
Please keep both Bishops in your prayers as they prepare for the transition.
