Bishop Gregory Bittman appointed to Diocese of Nelson, B.C.
Bishop Gregory Bittman admits he doesn’t know a whole lot about his new diocese in southeastern British Columbia yet, but he does know his top priority: “My plan is to go there and listen and get to know the people; that’s the first thing I’ll be doing.”
News of Bittman’s appointment as the new Bishop of the Diocese of Nelson came from the Vatican early Tuesday morning. He has served as Auxiliary Bishop of Edmonton since 2012. In Nelson, he will succeed the Most Rev. John Corriveau, OFM Cap., who is retiring after 10 years in the office.
