Pope Francis appoints Bishop Muheria as Nyeri Archbishop

Pope Francis has appointed His Lordship Rt. Rev. Anthony Muheria to head the Archdiocese of Nyeri. The episcopal appointment was made public in an announcement sent to bishops and archbishops in the country yesterday. Bishop Muheri is currently serving as the Bishop of Kitui and Apostolic Administrator, Catholic Diocese of Machakos.

"On behalf of the Apostolic Nuncio, I have the honour and pleasure to inform you that Pope Francis has appointed the Right Reverend Anthony Muheria as Archbishop of Nyeri," stated the communication addressed to all archbishops and bishops in the country. His appointment comes in following the retirement of Archbishop Peter Kairo. After attaining the retirement age of 75 years in September last year, Archbishop Kairo wrote to the Vatican seeking to leave office.

Bishop Muheria will officially take charge after he receives the pallium, which according to United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, "is a sign of office in the Latin Church worn by the pope and by metropolitan archbishops. "It is a white woolen band formed into a circle, which lies over the shoulders, with bands extending down the front and the back."

Some of the major projects done by Bishop Muheria in Kitui include and not limited to are: Opening of St. Teresas Catechetical Centre, St. John Paul II institute of Professional studies, Ongoing construction of Our Lady of Protection shrine, Museve, St. John Eudes Rehabilitation centre, Radio Thome, Primary Premium Program, Opening of two parishes (Mbondoni and Museve) and also construction of churches/mission houses among others.

Congratulations on your new appointment.
