WASHINGTON (CNS) — Pope Francis has named Father Peter M. Muhich, rector of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary in Duluth, Minnesota, to be the new bishop of Rapid City, South Dakota.

The announcement of Bishop-designate Muhich’s appointment was made May 12, the day before his 59th birthday.

Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the Vatican nuncio to the United States, announced the appointment in Washington.

The Diocese of Rapid City has been without a bishop since July 2019 when Bishop Robert D. Gruss was installed as bishop of Saginaw, Michigan.
