Diocesan consolidations continue as Pope unites 2 Spanish dioceses (Vatican Press Office)

Pope Francis has united two Spanish dioceses, the Diocese of Ciudad Rodrigo and the Diocese of Salamanca, in the person of their new bishop. Bishop José Luis Retana Gozalo, formerly Bishop of Plasencia, will concurrently govern both dioceses.

The Pontiff has similarly united or merged multiple Canadian dioceses, as well as two Alaskan dioceses.
