A Man of Wide Pastoral Experience

"I am very pleased at the announcement that Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Daniel Thomas of Philadelphia to succeed me as Bishop of Toledo. I have known Bishop Thomas for many years. He is a man of wide pastoral experience, deeply committed to Christ and the Church. The clergy and people of Toledo will be well served by the many gifts Bishop Thomas brings as their new shepherd."

Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair
Archbishop of Hartford
