New RC Bishop for Finland
« on: July 06, 2009, 03:08:11 PM »
HH Patriarch Benedictus of Rome and All the West has nominated fr Teemu Sippo SJC as the RC Bishop of Helsinki and All Finland. Fr Teemu has been during one year as administrator dioecesanus after the former bishop Josef left the country after becoming an assistant bishop of one the Polish Archbishops.
Episcopus electus Teemu is the first Finnish born successor of Finnish Patron Saint Henry - the Apostle of the Finns - after the Luttheran Reformation, so in 500 years.
Bishop Teemu has lead the ecumenical work of the Finnish Catholic Church for a long period and has very good relations also to the Finnish Autonomous Orthodox Church EP.
Many Years as the Shepard of Finnish Catholics for HE Teemu, Bishop of Helsinki and Metropolitan of All Finland! Ad Multos Annos!
