Congratulations and prayerful best wishes are extended to Msgr. Edward M. Deliman who has been named an Auxiliary Bishop of Philadelphia by Pope Francis.
Then-Father Deliman was Parochial Vicar (Assistant Pastor) of Saint Joseph Church, Cheltenham from June 1973 through June 1977 – his first assignment as a priest!
Archbishop Chaput will ordain Bishop-elect Deliman to the episcopacy on August 18, 2016 in the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. Please pray for Bishop-elect Deliman as he prepares for his new responsibilities.
