Pope Francis appoints Andrej Saje new bishop of Novo Mesto

Pope Francis appointed Andrej Saje the new bishop of Novo Mesto, the Slovenian Bishop’s Conference announced.

So far, the priest of the Ljubljana Archdiocese and native of the town in south-eastern Slovenia has worked as a judicial vicar of the Metropolitan Ecclesiastical Court in Ljubljana and teacher at the Ljubljana Faculty of Theology. Saje, who will be ordained bishop on 26 September, thanked the pope for the honour, and also thanked the outgoing Novo Mesto Bishop Andrej Glavan, who is retiring as he had already reached the age of 75.
