Pope appoints Brooklyn auxiliary bishop to head diocese of Bridgeport

 | 

Pope Francis has appointed Auxiliary Bishop Frank Caggiano of Brooklyn, N.Y., as the fifth bishop of the diocese of Bridgeport, Conn.

The appointment was announced Wednesday in Washington by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, apostolic nuncio to the United States.

Caggiano, 54, succeeds then-Bishop William Lori of Baltimore, who was named archbishop of Baltimore in March 2012.

Msgr. Jerald Doyle has been as administrator of the diocese since May 2012 and he will continue to serve in the post until Caggiano is installed.
