Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I wish to announce that I have appointed Monsignor James Loughnane, P.A., as Episcopal Vicar for the San Gabriel Pastoral Region. His appointment is effective beginning today.
Monsignor Loughnane has served in the Archdiocese for many decades, including many years in the San Gabriel Pastoral Region.
I am very grateful that he has accepted this appointment in this very challenging moment for our Archdiocese. I know you will welcome and support him as he assumes his new duties as Episcopal Vicar.
May the Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, grant you peace.
