Statement from Archbishop José H. Gomez on new appointment

Posted in Uncategorized by satodayscatholic on October 14, 2010

I am delighted by the Holy Father’s appointment of Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller as the next archbishop of San Antonio. Archbishop García-Siller is a wonderful bishop, priest and friend, and the people of the archdiocese will soon discover that they have a new shepherd who is a man of great faith and extraordinary pastoral sensitivity.

I am also pleased to point out that this appointment is noteworthy for Los Angeles as well. Archbishop García-Siller received his theological training at St. John’s Seminary in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, and lived in the Los Angeles Archdiocese for several years as rector of the house of studies for the Missionaries of the Holy Spirit.

I congratulate Archbishop García-Siller on his appointment, and I look forward to working together with him in the years ahead.
