After a two-year wait, a new bishop has been named to head the Archdiocese of Ozamiz in the southern Philippine region of Mindanao.
 
Pope Francis named Bishop Martin Jumoad as "shepherd" of the Archdiocese of Ozamiz, which covers 14 towns and three cities in Misamis Occidental province.
 
Under Ozamiz Archdiocese are the suffragan dioceses of Iligan, Pagadian, and Dipolog, and the prelature of Marawi.
 
Bishop Jumoad, who is currently head of the Prelature of Isabela in Basilan province, was ordained a priest in 1983.
 
He was parish priest of Lamitan in Basilan and former dean of St. Francis Xavier Regional Major Seminar in Davao City.
 
Bishop Jumoad is a member of Episcopal Commission on Migrants and Itinerant People and the Episcopal Commission on Mission of the Philippine bishops' conference.
