To the Catholic Community of Broken Bay,

I am writing to you as a valued member of our community to let you know that today we were advised that Pope Francis has appointed Most Rev Dr Peter Andrew Comensoli as the third Bishop of the Diocese of Broken Bay.

Bishop Peter is currently Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Sydney, and has most recently been Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese.

Further information about the appointment can be found on the Diocesan website:  www.dbb.org.au

In the coming days, information about the upcoming installation and celebrations will also be available on the website.

I ask you to join with me in welcoming Bishop Peter Comensoli to the Diocese of Broken Bay as we continue our journey together.

Yours in Christ,

Fr Vincent R Casey
