Nugroho Krisusanto sscc continues as Vicar General of the Diocese of Pangkalpinang (Brs)

The new bishop of the Diocese of Pangkalpinang, Indonesia, Mgr Adrianus Sunarko OFM, after consulting with the Provincial Superior of Indonesia, Bonie Payong sscc, has confirmed our brother Nugroho T. Krisusanto sscc as Vicar General of the Diocese.

When the previous bishop of the diocese of Pangkalpinang, Mgr Hilarius Moa Nurak SVD, died on 29 April 2016, the diocese was vacant for almost a year. Then our brother Nugroho was asked to be Vicar General, while the appointment of a new bishop arrived.

The 28 June of 2017, Adrianus Sunarko OFM was named new bishop of the diocese. His episcopal consecration took place on 23 September 2017. He is the first Franciscan bishop of the diocese, succeeding Bishop Hilarius Moa SVD who served as bishop for 29 years.

We congratulate the new bishop and our brother for their generosity in serving this diocese of Indonesia, made up of several islands: Bangka-Belitung and the islands of the Riau archipelago.
