Today the Vatican has declared that Bp. Emmanuel Shaleta had become the permanent Bishop of St. Peter’s Chaldean Catholic Diocese centered in San Diego. We offer our heartfelt prayers to the faithful of that Diocese and also for their new shepherd.

This has left the Chaldean Diocese of Mar Addai in Canada vacant. The Vatican have also appointed me as the temporary administrator to the diocese until a permanent Bishop is ordained or assigned to it. This new assignment for me is in addition to the St. Thomas Diocese. So please pray for the faithful in Canada and also pray for me that God grant me the wisdom and strength to fulfill His Will and balance His mission between the two dioceses.

Thank you. Praised be the name of Jesus! Both now and forever.
