Congratulations, Bishop-elect Persico
We extend our prayers and best wishes to Bishop-elect Lawrence T. Persico, the newly named 10th Bishop of the Diocese of Erie. The loss of the Diocese of Greensburg is a tremendous blessing to the Diocese of Erie.
Bishop-elect Persico served as chaplain here at St. Emma Monastery from February 11, 1988 until January 27, 1998, when he was named pastor of St. James Church, New Alexandria, PA.
May the Lord abundantly bless your ministry, Bishop-elect Persico. Please be assured of our prayers now, as you prepare to begin this new ministry as shepherd of the Diocese of Erie as well for many more years of fruitful work and ministry in this vineyard of the Lord.
