.- The Vatican recently announced that Pope John Paul has appointed Msgr. Salvatore Ronald Matano as Bishop Coadjutor of the diocese of Burlington in Vermont.

Msgr. Matano was born in Providence, Rhode Island on September 15, 1946 and joined Our Lady of Providence Seminary in 1964.

As a student at the North American College in Rome, he obtained a doctorate in Canon Law from the Gregorian University.

Matano was ordained a priest for the diocese of Providence on December 17,1971 at St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican and taught at Our Lady of Providence Seminary High School from 1972 to 1977, as well as serving as Vicar at the Our Lady of Grace parish.

He was appointed Director assistant to the Diocese's Chancellor from 1977 to 1980 and was appointed Co-Chancellor from 1983 to 1991. From 1991 to 1992 he worked at the Apostolic Nuncio’s office in Washington, until being appointed Vicar General of Providence in 1992.

From 2000 until now, he has served as an official at the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington.

The Burlington diocese was one of only seven of the U.S.’s more than 180 dioceses and eparchies that did not meet all the requirements of the national bishop’s 2003 anti-sexual-abuse charter.

Bishop Matano will succeed Burlington's current Bishop, Most Reverend Kenneth A. Angell.
