WASHINGTON — Pope Francis has appointed Father Bohdan J. Danylo, a seminary rector in Connecticut, to head the Ukrainian Eparchy of St. Josaphat in Parma, Ohio.

Bishop-designate Danylo, 43, has been rector and president of St. Basil College Seminary in Stamford, Connecticut, since 2005.

The appointment was announced Aug. 7 in Washington by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, apostolic nuncio to the United States.

Auxiliary Bishop John Bura of the Ukrainian Archeparchy of Philadelphia has been serving as the apostolic administrator of the Parma eparchy since the 2009 retirement of Bishop Robert M. Moskal.
