Bishop Kulick to Visit with Pope Francis In Rome

September 9, 2022 – GREENSBURG – Bishop Larry J. Kulick, Sixth Bishop of the Diocese of Greensburg, will travel to Rome on Sunday for the first time as a new Bishop. He will attend a Catholic educational institute for new bishops to learn more about shepherding in a post-pandemic world. On his last day in Rome, Bishop Kulick will attend Mass celebrated by Pope Francis followed by an audience with the Holy Father at the Vatican.

New-bishop school, sometimes know by the light-hearted nickname ‘baby bishop school,’ includes presentations on evangelization, communication, canon law and diocesan administration, among others.

The seminar is normally held annually, but was canceled for the last two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 150 Catholic bishops attended the first weeklong session in Rome, which ended Thursday. Next week, Bishop Kulick will be among 170 new Bishops who were ordained in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.

“I’m looking forward to this opportunity to meet with other newly-ordained Bishops and to see more firsthand the workings of the Universal Church. Of course the highlight will be meeting the Pope and having Mass with him,” Bishop Kulick said.

Bishop Kulick was ordained and installed as Bishop of the Diocese of Greensburg on February 11, 2021. Bishop Kulick is a native of Leechburg.  The course he is attending will be held at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum, a Catholic educational institute directed by the Legionaries of Christ, located about 4.5 miles from the Vatican.
