Brisbane Archbishop Mark Coleridge has last week been elected as the new President of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, with Sydney Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP as Vice-President.
Archbishop Coleridge was ordained as Auxiliary Bishop of Melbourne in 2002, and later became Archbishop of Canberra-Goulburn.
He has served as Archbishop of Brisbane since 2012, and this week replaces Melbourne Archbishop Denis Hart after the latter’s six-year stint as President of the Conference.
