ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Bishop-elect Mark Rivituso is officially ordained a bishop today, becoming Auxiliary Bishop of the St. Louis Archdiocese.

The new auxiliary bishop is a 55-years-old St. Louis native, a graduate of St. Mary’s High School who also served there as a teacher, pastor and Vicar General for the Archdiocese. He says his goal as a bishop is to bring people together.

“There’s divisions. I want to make sure we’re doing what we can to bring healing and reconciliation and a greater love to people’s lives,” he says.

The episcopal ordination takes place at 2 p.m. at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis on Lindell.
