FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WATERTOWN, MA (February 14, 2012) – Bishop Christopher J. Coyne To Appear on Live Talk Show of the CatholicTV® Network
On Friday, February 17, 2012, Bishop Christopher Coyne will be featured on the CatholicTV Network’s nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day, to discuss new and social media. Originally a priest for the Archdiocese of Boston, Bishop Coyne was named auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis by Pope Benedict XVI on January 14, 2011
Bishop Coyne was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Boston on June 7, 1986 and he holds a bachelor’s from the University of Lowell in Lowell, Massachusetts, a master’s of divinity from St. John Seminary in Brighton, Massachusetts, and a licentiate and a doctorate in liturgy from the Pontifical Liturgical Institute (St. Anselmo) in Rome.
Pope Benedict XVI named Rev. Christopher J. Coyne, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis on January 14, 2011. He served as auxiliary to Archbishop Daniel Buechlein, until he retired in September 2011. He was named apostolic administrator of the archdiocese by the pope until a permanent successor is named by the Vatican. Bishop Coyne is the first auxiliary the 250,000-member diocese has had since 1933.
Upon being named bishop, his ordinary, Archbishop of Boston Cardinal Sean O'Malley said:
"It is with great joy that I received the news that our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI has named Fr. Christopher J. Coyne as auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, Indiana. Bishop-elect Coyne has served as a Priest of the Archdiocese of Boston for almost twenty-five years, and during this time he has continued to demonstrate tremendous skill as a pastor and leader within the Archdiocese. Archbishop Daniel M. Buechlein is indeed blessed to receive one of Boston's finest priests.
Bishop Coyne has hosted numerous television series for the CatholicTV Network including Sacred Time, the New England Emmy-nominated Sacred Space, and Worship, Architecture & the Arts. Bishop Coyne has appeared as a guest on other shows as well as the annual CatholicTV Telethon.
Bishop Coyne has served the needs of the Archdiocese of Boston in many ways: as professor of Sacred Liturgy and Homiletics, as well as director of the Pre-Theology Program at St. John's Seminary, Brighton; as Archdiocesan Director for the Office of Worship as well as Cabinet Secretary for Communications and Archdiocesan Spokesman for the Archdiocese of Boston. And most recently as Pastor of Saint Margaret Mary Parish in Westwood, MA, Bishop-elect Coyne has continued to demonstrate the skills and abilities that led our Holy Father to recognize in him a good candidate for the office of Bishop.
