Pope Names Monsignor New Bishop Of Greensburg
Pope Francis on Friday appointed the Rev. Monsignor Larry Kulick as the sixth bishop of the Greensburg Diocese, which is home to more than 128,000 Roman Catholics.
The 54-year-old has served as administrator since his predecessor, Bishop Edward Malesic, became the bishop of Cleveland in September, the diocese said.
"Western Pennsylvania has always been my home. I feel honored to be able to serve as bishop in the diocese where I was born, raised, educated, ordained and have served my entire life,” Kulick said in a statement.
His ordination and installation is scheduled for Feb. 11.
The diocese has 78 parishes in Armstrong, Fayette, Indiana, and Westmoreland counties.
