Today, the Holy Father accepted the resignation of Bishop Gerald and appointed Bishop John Steven Pazak as the Bishop of the Holy Protection of Mary Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Phoenix. May God Grant both Bishops Many years.
I’ve had the privilege of spending time with Bishop Gerald. I will miss him. Eis Polla Eti, Despota! Many years Master! Enjoy retirement.
I’m at the same time excited for the future with our new Bishop John.
