Pope Benedict XVI appointed Auxiliary Bishop Štefan Sečka as the new Bishop of the Spiš Diocese on August 4, the SITA newswire wrote.
At the same the pope accepted the resignation of Spiš Diocese Bishop František Tondra, because he reached age 75, the age at which Canon law requires that bishops retire.
