I wish to advise that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI has accepted the resignation of Most Rev. John Alexius Bathersby, Archbishop of Brisbane and has appointed Most Rev. Geoffrey Hylton Jarrett, Bishop of Lismore as Apostolic Administrator of Brisbane.
I am sure you will join me in congratulating Bishop Jarrett on this appointment and assure him of our prayers as he undertakes this important role.
