HAMILTON, ONT. - Fr. Daniel Miehm has been appointed the new auxiliary bishop for the Hamilton diocese.

Archbishop Pedro Lopez Quintana announced the appointment by Pope Benedict XVI Feb. 20.

The 52-year-old Miehm is a native of the diocese, having been born in Kitchener, Ont. He has also served the diocese since his ordination in 1989, and is currently pastor at St. Benedict parish in Milton, Ont.

"I am delighted with the appointment of Bishop Daniel Miehm as auxiliary bishop for our diocese," said Hamilton Bishop Douglas Crosby. "I consider it to be a parting gift from Pope Benedict to all of us. We have been looking forward to this announcement and feel blessed and grateful to his holiness."

"Fr. Miehm has been an excellent pastor and has served the diocese of Hamilton diligently as a priest for the past 24 years since his ordination to the priesthood in 1989. I am certain that he will continue to serve with wisdom and the same commitment and dedication."

Bishop-elect Miehm holds a Masters in Divinity from Toronto's St. Augustine's Seminary and a licentiate in Canon Law from the University of St. Tomasso (Angelicum) in Rome.
