Archbishop-Elect Peter Machado


In the light of the Communication received from the Apostolic Nunciature, I wish to inform you that His Holiness Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of His Grace Most Rev. Bernard Blasius Moras from the pastoral care of the Archdiocese of Bangalore, according to Canon Law 401 § 1, and has appointed H. E. Msgr. Peter Machado, until now Bishop of Belgaum, as the new Archbishop of Bangalore.

His Grace Most Rev. Bernard Moras will remain as Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese until the day of the canonical taking possession of the new Archbishop.

This provision was made public in Rome on Monday, 19th March, 2018, at noon local time, corresponding to 16:30 hours, Indian Standard Time.

While thanking the Lord, for the dedicated services Archbishop Bernard Moras has rendered to the Church in Bangalore, let us entrust to the intercession of the Virgin Mary the Episcopal ministry of the new Archbishop.

We send our prayerful greetings and best wishes to Archbishop-elect Peter Machado and assure him of our prayers.

Yours Sincerely in Our Lord,
Bishop Theodore Mascarenhas, SFX
Secretary General, CBCI
