Pope Francis Appoints Bishop
To Lead the Diocese of Toledo
After many months of prayer and anticipation, it’s official: Pope Francis has appointed the Most Reverend Daniel E. Thomas, auxiliary bishop of Philadelphia, as Bishop-Designate of the Toledo Diocese. Bishop Thomas will succeed the Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair, who in December 2013 became Archbishop of Hartford, Connecticut. Since then, the Reverend Charles Ritter has served as Diocesan Administrator.
Bishop Thomas will be installed as Bishop of Toledo at a Mass to be celebrated on October 22, 2014, at 2 p.m. at Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral, 2535 Collingwood Boulevard, Toledo. Bishop Thomas comes to Toledo with a wealth of credentials and experience, including a licentiate in Sacred Theology (S.T.L.) from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.

Welcome, Bishop Thomas!
