On August 26, 2014, our Holy Father Pope Francis named the Most Reverend Daniel E. Thomas as the eighth Bishop of the Diocese of Toledo. Bishop Thomas had served as an Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia since his Episcopal Ordination on July 26, 2006.
Bishop Thomas was born and raised in Philadelphia, attending Catholic elementary and high schools. He graduated from Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, Pa., earning both Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees. He also earned a Licentiate in Sacred Theology (S.T.L.) in 1989 from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
Ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia on May 18, 1985, Bishop Thomas was first assigned as a Parochial Vicar at Saint Joseph Parish in Aston, PA. After graduate studies at the Pontifical North American College and the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, from 1987-1990, he was assigned to serve the Holy See as an Official of the Congregation for Bishops — the Dicastery of the Roman Curia primarily charged with assisting the Holy Father in the selection of candidates for the episcopacy.
While serving 15 years at the Congregation for Bishops, Bishop Thomas also served as an Adjunct Spiritual Director at the Pontifical North American College Seminary in Rome. In 1995, he was named Chaplain to His Holiness (Monsignor), and in 2005, was named a Prelate of Honor, both by Pope John Paul II.
In October 2005, Bishop Thomas returned to Pennsylvania and was appointed Pastor of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish in Strafford. In 2006, he was ordained Auxiliary Bishop of Philadelphia, to assist the Archbishop with pastoral responsibilities and administrative duties.
The Installation of The Most Reverend Daniel E. Thomas as Bishop of Toledo took place on the first Memorial of Pope Saint John Paul II at Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral on October 22, 2014.
The Catholic Business Network, a Charities Charities of the Diocese of Toledo ministry, invites people of all faiths to explore ways of living and promoting Catholic values.
