Statement from Archbishop Mark Coleridge on the appointment of Monsignor Robert McGuckin as Bishop of Toowoomba

Connect with Archbishop Mark Coleridge:

For some time the appointment of a new Bishop of Toowoomba has been a matter of urgency, and I very much welcome the choice of Monsignor Robert McGuckin for the See. I hope and pray that his coming to the Diocese will bring peace after the recent turbulence. Bishop-elect McGuckin brings much experience and many gifts to the episcopal ministry, and these will equip him well for all that lies ahead. I look forward to working closely with him to build up the Church in Queensland, and I am sure that the Bishops of the Province and the entire community of the faithful in Toowoomba – clergy, religious and laity – will welcome him as the man chosen and sent by Jesus Christ on this new mission.
