Appointment of Bishop Gregory O'Kelly sj of Port Pirie as Apostolic Administrator of Adelaide
Pope Francis has  today  appointed Bishop Gregory O’Kelly SJ of Port Pirie as Apostolic Administrator of the Archdiocese of Adelaide. The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference appreciates both the Holy Father’s pastoral concern for the Archdiocese  and Bishop O’Kelly’s generosity in accepting the appointment.
Bishop O’Kelly was born in Adelaide and served there as a priest and Auxiliary Bishop  before his appointment to Port Pirie. He is well known in the Archdiocese of  Adelaide and is well qualified for the role entrusted to him. He will remain Bishop of Port Pirie during this period. As Apostolic Administrator, Bishop O’Kelly assumes administrative and executive authority in the Archdiocese until any future decision of the Pope, to whom an  Apostolic Administrator is directly answerable.
