Peterborough welcomed its 13th bishop Wednesday at a mass held at St. Peter in Chains cathedral.
Bishop Daniel Joseph Miehm arrives in Peterborough after serving as pastor and auxiliary bishop in Hamilton for the past 28 years. He was appointed as bishop by Pope Francis, and spoke at the installation service about his excitement to begin this new chapter in his life of service. He also thanked Bishop William McGratten who has helped support the transition.
Bishop Miehm has already moved to Peterborough; on Friday he will depart for Rome to visit Pope Francis.
