Msgr. Stephen Berg appointed bishop of Pueblo

PUEBLO, Colo. -  Pope Francis has appointed Monsignor Stephen Berg as bishop of Pueblo.

The Catholic Church said Wednesday Berg will replace Bishop Fernando Isern, who retired in June because of poor health.

Berg was formerly the Diocesan Administrator of the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth. He will take over his Colorado position on Feb. 27.

He is the second Fort Worth Catholic priest in two months to be named a bishop by Pope Francis. In November, Rev. Msgr. Michael F. Olson., a priest of the Diocese of Fort Worth and most recently the rector of Irving-based Holy Trinity Seminary, was named bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth.
