Roman Catholic Diocese Of Grand Rapids To Announce New Bishop

Facebook

There will soon be a new leader for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids.

The Diocese of Grand Rapids will introduce their next bishop at Cathedral Square tomorrow morning at 10:00am.

Current Bishop Walter Hurley will retire.  He turned 75 last May.  75 is the mandatory retirement age for bishops in the Catholic Church.

Bishop Hurley became a priest in 1965.  Pope Benedict XVI appointed him bishop of the Diocese of Grand Rapids on June 21, 2005.

The next bishop will lead the diocese through many changes including overseeing the start of a new Catholic parish in Cedar Springs.  The new parish was just announced on April 15.

Check back Thursday morning for details on the next bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids.
