Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., issued the following statement April 4 on Pope Francis’ appointment of Atlanta Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory as the Archbishop of Washington.
“Washington is an important See for the Church in the United States, and Archbishop Gregory’s long experience as a leader will serve the people of the archdiocese and the wider Catholic community very well.
“The clergy and people of the Church in Philadelphia send their prayers, warm best wishes, and congratulations.”
