On 23 June 2023 Pope Francis appointed Fr. Eusebius Jelous Nyathi, the Rector of Chishawasha National Major Seminary of Sts. John Fisher and Thomas More as the Bishop of Gokwe Diocese.
Fr. Nyathi was appointed as Rector of the national major seminary in 2022. He was previously the Vice Rector of the Department of Theology.
The bishop elect Nyathi takes over from Bishop Rudolf Nyandoro who was transferred to take charge of Gweru Diocese in September 2020.
The IMBISA Secretariat congratulates him on this new appointment and continues praying for him as he prepares himself for the ceremonies connected with his ordination to the Episcopacy.
