It is with great pride and gratitude to God, that we inform everyone that this morning Pope Francis has appointed Father Jeffrey J. Walsh as the sixth bishop of the Diocese of Gaylord, Michigan.

Father Walsh has faithfully served as a priest in the Diocese of Scranton since 1994 and has been a caring, compassionate and skilled pastor. He currently serves as pastor of Saint Rose of Lima Parish and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish in Carbondale.

Bishop-elect Walsh's episcopal ordination and installation as Bishop of Gaylord are scheduled for March 4, 2022.

“With gratitude to our Holy Father Pope Francis, and joy in the Lord, I am eager to begin a new chapter in my life of discipleship among the good people of the Diocese of Gaylord! I am also most grateful to God for 27 years of priestly ministry in the Diocese of Scranton. I have been inspired and challenged to grow in faith through various diocesan assignments and will forever prayerfully remember all the lay faithful, religious, deacons, priests and bishops with whom and for whom I have served,” Bishop-elect Walsh said.
