Pope Francis Names

Most Reverend Timothy C. Senior

Bishop of the Diocese of Harrisburg

Most Reverend Nelson J. Pérez, Archbishop of Philadelphia, is pleased to share that Pope Francis has named Most Reverend Timothy C. Senior, Auxiliary Bishop of Philadelphia, as the 12th Bishop of the Diocese of Harrisburg. Founded in 1868, the Diocese of Harrisburg is home to over 200,000 Catholics from 15 counties in central Pennsylvania.

In reaction to this appointment Archbishop Pérez said, “This moment is one of great joy for the Church in Philadelphia! I’ve known and worked closely with Bishop Senior since long before either of us were bishops. He is an exemplary priest who has served his hometown faithfully for many years with great wisdom, intelligence, and apostolic zeal for the good of souls. It has been an inspiration for me to witness his humility, devotion, and unending dedication for many years. Pope Francis has given the people of the Church in Harrisburg a true gift in making this appointment. I know Bishop Senior will serve them joyfully as a faithful shepherd.

I ask that the bishops, priests, deacons, consecrated religious, and lay faithful of Philadelphia join me in extending hearty congratulations and prayerful best wishes to Bishop Senior as he prepares to accept this assignment.”
