B/CS Roots to Bishop-Elect of San AngeloFeatured Stories, News Thursday, December 12th, 2013
A former pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic Center in College Station, who grew up in Bryan, has been promoted.
Michael Sis has been named Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of San Angelo by Pope Francis.
Sis will be ordained and installed next month. He will lead churches in a 29 county area of west and central Texas, which he compares the geography to the state of Indiana.
A 1978 graduate of Bryan High School, Sis spent his longest term of service at St. Mary’s from 1992 through 2005.
He will be moving from the Austin Diocese, where he was appointed in 2010 as the Vicar General and Moderator of Curia.
Other assignments have included Cristo Rey Parish in east Austin, St. Mary Cathedral in downtown Austin, St. Thomas More Parish in Austin, and the Vocation Director for the Diocese of Austin.
Sis says he looks forward to connecting with Aggies in the San Angelo Diocese, which also includes Midland, Odessa, Ft. Stockton, and Abilene.
