New Bishop of Memphis appointed by Pope


Auxiliary Bishop Martin Holley of Washington will replace Bishop J Terry Steib

Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Bishop J Terry Steib of Memphis, Tennessee, and has appointed as his successor Auxiliary Bishop Martin Holley of Washington.
Bishop Steib has headed the Memphis Diocese since 1993. He is 76. Canon law requires all bishops to hand in their resignation to the Pope at the age 75. Bishop Holley, 61, has been a Washington auxiliary since 2004.
The changes were announced on Tuesday in Washington by Mgr Walter Erbi, charge d’affaires of the Vatican nunciature.
