It is expected that come Thursday morning, 1/23, Pope Francis will have announced his choice for the new Archbishop of Philadelphia. The Vatican will make the official announcement at 6 a.m. and there is a local press conference is scheduled for 10 a.m.

Archbishop Charles Chaput turned 75 last year and put in his official resignation. It is expected that Bishop Nelson Perez, of the Diocese of Cleveland, will become his successor.

58-year-old Perez is a Cuban American born in Miami to immigrants and raised in North Jersey. He was ordained in 1989 after attending St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood. He served as a parish priest for 23 years at numerous parishes around Philadelphia and suburbs. In 2012, he was names an auxiliary bishop in Long Island. Perez has led the Cleveland diocese for the past two years.

Chaput plans to remain in the area after retirement. Perez will become the first Archbishop since Cardinal Dennis Joseph Dougherty (1918–1951) to have been a local product.
