Bethlehem University has announced the appointment of the Most Reverend Leopoldo Girelli as the new chancellor.

In September, Pope Francis appointed Archbishop Girelli as the Apostolic Delegate to Jerusalem and Palestine. The Apostolic Delegate is Pope Francis’ personal representative to the people of Palestine. It is in this role that Archbishop Girelli serves as chancellor of Bethlehem University. Archbishop Girelli is also Apostolic Nuncio to Israel and Cyprus. He had previously served as Apostolic Nuncio to Indonesia, Timor-Leste and Singapore.
