  • Bishop-elect malesic

     Bishop Ronald W. Gainer of the Diocese of Harrisburg announced this morning that Pope Francis has appointed Father Edward C. Malesic, a priest of the Diocese of Harrisburg, as Bishop of Greensburg. He will be introduced at a news conference at the Bishop Connare Center in Greensburg at 10:00 a.m. today. Currently Father Malesic is serving as Judicial Vicar for the Diocese of Harrisburg and as Pastor forHoly Infant Parish, York Haven, PA.

    Bishop Gainer said in a statement on the appointment, “Father Malesic has served his home Diocese of Harrisburg with exceptional dedication and fruitfulness as the Judicial Vicar and as pastor of Holy Infant Parish in York Haven.  Over the years he has served the bishops of the diocese in a variety of advisory roles.  He has earned the affection and respect of all who have been touched by his priestly life and ministry.”   He continued by saying, “When he leaves us for the Diocese of Greensburg, we will face a significant challenge in needing to provide for the offices he will vacate.  We will all miss him, his quick wit, and his exemplary commitment to priestly ministry.  Father Malesic goes to Greensburg with our deepest gratitude and the support of our continued prayers and friendship in Christ.”

    Bishop-Elect Malesic will be ordained a Bishop on July 13, 2015 at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral, Greensburg.  In a prepared statement he stated that he was greatly honored and deeply humbled by the decision of Pope Francis to appoint him as the fifth bishop of the Diocese of Greensburg. He described himself by referencing the Pope saying, “In short, as Pope Francis said of himself, I too am a fellow sinner.  But because I am a fellow believer I have also received the mercy of God – I want to proclaim that. With God there is mercy and fullness of redemption.”  He continued, thanking the people of the Diocese of Harrisburg saying that, “They have formed me in my faith from my early childhood and in the priesthood.  Every parish and community that I have lived in and served has taught me something more about what it means to be a Christian.  I am grateful.”

    Bishop-Elect Malesic will become the fifth Bishop of Greensburg, succeeding Bishop Lawrence Brandt who submitted his letter of resignation to Pope Francis last year when he reached age 75. The Diocese of Greensburg was erected on March 10, 1951 and contains four counties in southwestern Pennsylvania. They cover 3,334 square miles and encompass Armstrong, Fayette, Indiana and Westmoreland counties. The diocese includes a Catholic population of 148,937 in 78 parishes.

    Bishop-Elect Malesic is the fifth priest of the Diocese of Harrisburg to be appointed Bishop and the second since 2011.  The first was Bishop Lawrence F. Schott who served as an Auxiliary Bishop for the Diocese of Harrisburg from 1956 until his death in 1963.  Cardinal William Keeler, retired of Baltimore, was named as an Auxiliary Bishop for the Diocese in 1979. In 2004 then Father Kevin C. Rhoades became the third priest of the diocese to rise to Bishop when he was appointed to lead the Diocese of Harrisburg.  The fourth appointment of a Harrisburg priest was Bishop William Waltershied who was named Auxiliary Bishop of Pittsburgh in 2011.

    Bishop-Elect Malesic, 54, was born August 14, 1960 in Harrisburg, PA to Joseph A. and the late Elizabeth Schatt Malesic and was raised in Enhaut. He is a 1978 graduate of Central Dauphin East High School and attended Lebanon Valley College as a Biology Major for three years prior to entering the seminary.

    He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy in 1983 and a Master of Divinity degree in 1987 from the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio.  He was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Harrisburg by then Bishop William H. Keeler on May 30, 1987.

    Bishop-Elect Malesic has served in various pastoral assignments in the Diocese of Harrisburg.  He was the Assistant Pastor of St. Theresa Parish, New Cumberland, PA from 1987-1989; and the Assistant Pastor of St. Rose of Lima Parish, York, PA from 1989-1992. While in York he also served as the Catholic Campus Minister of York College of Pennsylvania.

    He was appointed to full time campus ministry in 1992 and served for four years at Millersville University.  In 1993 he was also appointed to campus ministry at Franklin and Marshall College in nearby Lancaster, PA.

    In 1996 Bishop Nicholas C. Dattilo sent him to study canon law at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.   He received his licentiate in canon law in 1998 and has served the Tribunal in various capacities, including Auditor, Adjutant Judicial Vicar and Secretary for Canonical Services.  He was appointed Judicial Vicar in 2006, a position he currently holds.

    He has resided at St. Margaret Mary Parish in Harrisburg and at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, Mechanicsburg. While living in Mechanicsburg, Bishop-Elect Malesic also served the spiritual needs of the students of Messiah College in Dillsburg, PA.

    In 2004 then Father Malesic was appointed to Holy Infant Parish in York Haven, PA as Administrator and later as Pastor.  He has guided that parish for the last 11 years and is currently overseeing the relocation and construction of a new church and parish center, which is scheduled for completion in 2016.
