The Holy Father has appointed Bishop Anthony Colin Fisher, Ordinary Member of the Pontifical Academy for Life, as Metropolitan Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Sydney (Australia).

The Archbishop elect was born in Sydney in 1960, took perpetual vows in the Order of Preachers in 1987 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1991. In 2003 he was nominated as Auxiliary Bishop of Sydney and has been Bishop of Parramatta (Australia) since 2010. We congratulate the new Archbishop and assure him of our heartfelt prayers as he begins his new ministry.
