A bishop from Kansas is new head of the Diocese of Tucson

TUCSON, Ariz. — A bishop from Kansas is the new head of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tucson.

 

The Vatican on Tuesday announced that Bishop Edward Joseph Weisenburger will succeed retiring Bishop Gerald Kicanas.

Kicanas submitted his letter of retirement last summer as required for all bishops after they reach age 75.

Weisenburger has served as bishop in the Diocese of Salina, Kansas since 2012.

He is scheduled to be installed as Tucson’s seventh bishop on Nov. 29.

Weisenburger was ordained to the priesthood in 1987.
