Teresia Derlén Elected Bishop of the Diocese of Härnösand

Many of us will have fond memories of Teresia, who served in the benefice as a priest between 2012-2019. Teresia has just been elected as the new Bishop of Härnösand, a diocese in the north of Sweden. 

"It's overwhelming. It is a great honour, but an equally great responsibility. I am grateful for the trust that the Diocese of Härnösand has given me and I look forward to getting to know my new employees and diocesan residents," she said, immediately after she received the news.

Teresia will be consecrated bishop at a ceremony in Uppsala Cathedral on 22 September, succeeding the diocese's current bishop Eva Nordung-Byström, who is retiring after ten years in the post.

We are sending our congratulations to Teresia and Mattias. Please keep them in your prayers.
