WASHINGTON — Pope Benedict has appointed Archbishop Joseph Tobin, secretary of the Vatican Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, to be archbishop of Indianapolis.

The appointment was announced Oct. 18 in Washington by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, apostolic nuncio to the United States.

Archbishop Tobin, 60, succeeds Archbishop Daniel Buechlein, who resigned in September 2011 at age 73 for health reasons.

Auxiliary Bishop Christopher Coyne has been serving as apostolic administrator of the archdiocese.

A native of Detroit, Archbishop Tobin is a member of the Redemptorist congregation. He has been secretary of the Vatican congregation since October 2010.
