|Bishop Fernando Vergez LC|
In Rome today, Pope Francis ordained Fr. Fernando Vergez, LC,
to the episcopate.
The Legion of Christ priest had been named Secretary General of the Governorate of Vatican City in
August. Because of this new position and what it would
require, the Pope said he decided to name Fr.
Vergez a bishop.
The ordination was held at 4:30 pm at
St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. Click here for
