On June 17th, Pope Francis appointed Fr. Robert Kasun, C.S.B., as auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Toronto.

Father Kasun will become one of four auxiliary bishops who assist Cardinal Thomas Collins in the Archdiocese of Toronto. Cardinal Collins welcomed the announcement: “We are grateful to the Holy Father for the appointment of Bishop-designate Kasun. I am excited to welcome him to the Archdiocese of Toronto and know that he will make a profound impact in our efforts to evangelize, inspire and care for God’s people. I invite our entire faith community to join me in offering our prayers and best wishes as he prepares to join us soon.”
Bishop-designate Kasun has been serving in the Archdiocese of Edmonton, where he will be Ordained on September 12th. The Principal Consecrator is Toronto’s Archbishop, Cardinal Thomas Collins and the two Co-Consecrators are Archbishop Michael Miller, CSB of Vancouver and Bishop Ronald Fabbro, CSB of London.
