The Diocese of Peshawar congratulates Revd. Leo Rodrick Paul on becoming the new Bishop of Multan. In June, 2011, Election of the Multan Diocese took place to elect a new Bishop. The Synod, Church of Pakistan and the Diocesan Council of Multan jointly declared Revd. Leo Paul as the new elected Bishop of Multan.
The Consecration ceremony of Bishop Leo was held at the Lahore Cathedral. The Rt. Revd. Samuel Azariah, Moderator, Church of Pakistan, along with other bishops blessed the newly elected Bishop to serve the Diocese of Multan.
The Peshawar Diocese has a long history of working closely with the Diocese of Multan, our previous Bishop of Peshawar, the Rt. Revd. Mano Rumalshah remained Commissary Bishop of Multan for a long time. Similarly, the Rt. Revd. Humphrey Peters, Bishop of Peshawar also served the Multan Diocese as its Commissary. The Diocese of Peshawar also played a vital role in the whole election process of the Multan Diocese.
We hope that the Diocese of Multan will further flourish and develop under the new leadership of the Rt. Revd. Leo, Bishop of Multan.
