Archbishop Timothy Broglio Expresses Gratitude for Auxiliary Bishop Robert J. Coyle’s “Selfless Ministry”

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, His Excellency, the Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio, J.C.D., Archbishop for the Military Services, USA, issued the following statement after the Holy See announced the transfer of Auxiliary Bishop Robert J. Coyle to Bishop Coyle’s home diocese of Rockville Centre, N.Y.: “I am deeply grateful to Bishop Coyle for the selfless ministry that has been his since I ordained him to the episcopacy on 25 April 2013.  At great personal sacrifice, he lived far from his parents and familiar surroundings on Long Island and tirelessly took up the pilgrim’s staff to minister to the men and women in uniform and their families. I know that he will offer the same generous service to Bishop John Barres and to the faithful of his native Rockville Centre.  He returns to them enriched by his ministry to a flock stationed in half of the continental United States.  He will continue to be in my prayers and I am counting on his for the noble people who make up this archdiocese.”
