‘On this Feast Day of St Philip Neri, it is with great pleasure—and a twinge of sadness—that I welcome the appointment of Bishop Mark Edwards OMI as the next Bishop of the Diocese of Wagga Wagga,’ Archbishop Peter A Comensoli said.

‘St Philip was a 16th century disciple well-known for his natural ability to connect with people and invite them to an encounter with the risen Jesus. As Auxiliary Bishop of Melbourne, Bishop Mark has shown this same missionary zeal, especially in his work with our young people and tertiary communities, and with the people of the Western Region of the Archdiocese for whom he has cared for these past years as their Regional Bishop. He will be well-placed to listen to and lead the people of God in Wagga Wagga.’
