SJVC Congratulates Most Reverend Nelson Perez

Nelson Perez

Saint John Vianney Center congratulates Most Reverend Nelson J. Perez being named the 14th Bishop and 10th Archbishop of Philadelphia.  We look forward to welcoming him back to the Archdiocese where he was ordained a priest on May 20, 1989 and served until he was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Rockville Centre in 2012 and later the 10th Bishop of Cleveland.

We offer Archbishop-elect Perez our heartfelt prayers and blessings as he prepares to lead the people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.  We echo Archbishop Chaput’s words that Most Reverend Perez is a good man, a man of deep Catholic faith with the skills, character, and warmth that make an exceptional leader.
