WASHINGTON — Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Bishop George W. Coleman of Fall River, Massachusetts, and appointed Auxiliary Bishop Edgar da Cunha of Newark, New Jersey, as his successor.

Bishop Coleman, who has been Fall River's bishop since 2003, is 75 years old, the age at which bishops are required by canon law to turn in their resignation to the pope.

Bishop da Cunha, a native of Brazil and a member of the Society of Divine Vocations, has been an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Newark since 2003.
