Pope Francis has appointed Algirdas Jurevicius as the bishop of the Roman Catholic diocese of Telšiai, the Lithuanian Bishops' Conference said on June 2. The 48-year-old replaces Kęstutis Kevalas, who was appointed archbishop of Kaunas in February.
Jurevicius studied at the seminary of Kaunas and the Catholic Faculty of Theology of the Vytautas Magnus University of Kaunas, and was awarded a doctorate in pastoral theology at the Philosophisch-Teologische Hochschule Sankt Georgen in Frankfurt-am-Main, Germany.
