Franciscan Friar Conventual Gregory Hartmayer is the 14th Bishop of Savannah, Georgia. His Episcopal Ordination took place on October 18, 2011. In the almost five years that have gone by since the ordination, Bishop Hartmayer has worked hard to serve the people of his diocese. He always listens to their concerns, helps them as best he can, and inspires them to embrace their faith.
This month, the Buffalo, New York native has been traveling to parishes across the Diocese of Savannah and confirming young men and woman who are eagerly embracing and living their faith. Yesterday, he confirmed young adults at St. John the Evangelist Parish in Valdosta. The day before, he did the same at St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Ray City. On Sunday, Conception Parish in Moultrie welcomed their bishop to their young people’s confirmation.
Bishop Hartmayer’s travel schedule is intense. But he takes joy in getting to know the young people he is about to confirm. They are the future of the Church and he will always support them.
