Statement from Bishop Barres:

“The Diocese of Rockville Centre celebrates with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia the news of Archbishop Nelson Perez’s appointment as the Archbishop of Philadelphia.

His deep spiritual life and creativity in evangelization, his national leadership in the 5th Encuentro and his rich roots in the Catholic Church of Philadelphia will result, with the intercession of St. John Neumann and St. Katherine Drexel, in a new and compelling era of bold evangelization.

The Diocese of Rockville Centre and all of Long Island remembers Archbishop Perez’s “Joy of the Gospel”, his contagious sense of humor and his pastoral spirit with great fondness and with great pride as we celebrate this historic day.”
