Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Alessandro D’Errico revealed the name of the new bishop of Gozo and introduced him to the diocese. The new Gozo Bishop is Dun Anton Theuma.

The ceremony took place at the Ta’ Pinu Basilica in Għarb.

The new bishop is a Gozitan priest who did pastoral work in Rome but has been doing pastoral work in Gozo for many years. He will be the ninth bishop of the Diocese of Gozo.

In the past weeks different Maltese media have erroneously speculated about the name of the new bishop.

Today Bishop Mario Grech will publish a pastoral letter to welcome his successor. It was Grech’s idea that the announcement is done at the Ta’ Pinu Basilica and not at the Curia.
