Development and Peace would like to congratulate Most Reverend Daniel Joseph Miehm on his ordination and installation as the Auxiliary Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Hamilton.
On the day of May 7th 2013, Development and Peace members from the Diocese, as well as myself were honored to be part of this joyous occasion.
We look forward to working with Bishop Miehm side by side to continue to support our brothers and sisters in the Global South, who promote alternatives to unfair social, political and economic structures. In the spirit of solidarity we trust, that Bishop Miehm will support us in educating the Diocese of Hamilton about the causes of poverty and mobilize our Diocese towards actions for change.
Prayer for Bishop Daniel Joseph Miehm
Lord our God,
You have chosen your servant,
Daniel Joseph Miehm
To be a shepherd of your flock
in the tradition of the apostles.
Give him a spirit of courage and right judgment,
a spirit of knowledge and love.
By governing with fidelity those entrusted to his care
May he build your Church as a sign of salvation for the world.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
