(CCCB-Ottawa) His Holiness Pope John Paul II today named Rev. Robert Anthony Daniels, currently Vicar General of the Diocese of London, as Titular Bishop of Scebaziana and Auxiliary Bishop of London. He will assist Most Rev. Ronald Fabbro, C.S.B., the current bishop of London in his pastoral duties.

Born in 1957 in Windsor, Ontario, Bishop-elect Daniels studied at St. Peter’s Seminary in London, and received masters of divinity from the University of Western Ontario. He was ordained to the priesthood on May 7, 1983 for the Diocese of London and was assigned to two parishes: St. John the Divine and St. Peter’s Cathedral Basilica. In 1989 he was named diocesan chancellor, and four years later vicar general and moderator of the curia. At the moment of this nomination, he was also Rector of St. Peter’s Cathedral Basilica.

The Diocese of London, the sixth largest in Canada, has a Catholic population of 444,310 in 167 parishes and missions, served by 160 diocesan priests, 71 religious order priests, three permanent deacons, and 479 religious sisters and brothers.
