Holy Father, Pope Francis has appointed the Most Reverend Michael William Fisher as the 15th Bishop of the Diocese of Buffalo. Bishop Fisher currently is an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. He will be installed as the Bishop of Buffalo by His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Metropolitan Archbishop of New York at 2:00 p.m. on January 15, 2021 at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Buffalo. Also in attendance will be His Excellency Archbishop Christophe Pierre, Apostolic Nunico to the United States.
Echoing Bishop Fisher’s episcopal motto, I pray the clergy, religious, and faithful of the Diocese of Buffalo welcome Bishop Fisher “in faithfulness and love.”
