Congratulating our next Auxiliary Bishop
February 21, 2012

Daniel Cardinal DiNardo offered these words of congratulations to Bishop-elect George A. Sheltz, who today was named the next Auxiliary Bishop of Galveston-Houston:
It is my great pleasure to congratulate Bishop-elect Sheltz on his appointment to be the new Auxiliary Bishop of Galveston-Houston.

As a parish priest and pastor for 36 years, Bishop-elect Sheltz has been a calm and kind shepherd to so many of our Catholic faithful at churches across the Archdiocese. More recently, as Vicar General and Chancellor, he has ably assisted me in the governance of this local Church. His serene demeanor in every administrative and pastoral situation signifies a man who is strong in his faith in the Lord and in the Church.

I join the people of Galveston-Houston in rejoicing over the Holy Father’s appointment of Bishop-elect Sheltz to this position. I look forward to working with you as my chief collaborator in this growing, diverse Archdiocese. May God bless you and guide you as you love and lead the Church with the heart of Christ.
Cardinal DiNardo will introduce Bishop-elect Sheltz at a press conference today, Feb. 21, at the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston's downtown Chancery at 10 a.m.
