It was with great joy that the news reached us from Oslo, that Fr Ottar Mikael Myrseth has been elected as the new bishop of NCC Scandinavia. In this office he will succeed Bishop Roald who will continue as bishop for the NCC communities in continental Europe and the UK.
Fr Ottar is well known to most of us as one of the founding members of the Nordic Catholic Church. Since 2013 he has served as Bishop Roald’s Vicar General.
The consecration of Fr Ottar will take place on April 30th in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and his installation as bishop is scheduled for the 16th of May in Oslo.
