You have probably heard the news that a new bishop has been named for the Diocese of Raleigh, and his name is Luis Rafael Zarama. He is originally from Colombia, and has served most recently as an auxiliary bishop in Atlanta.


He will be installed as bishop on August 29th. He was introduced at a news conference on July 5th, and the front page headline in the N&O, alongside a photo of Bishop Zarama, reads “I’m here to serve and to love everybody.”

We look forward to getting to know him as he begins his service as bishop in our diocese.

Blessings on your week!
