Marquez installed Coadjutor Bishop of Lucena, Administrator of Gumaca

Bishop Emilio Z. Marquez was installed as Coadjutor Bishop of the Diocese of Lucena and Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Gumaca during solemn liturgical rites held last May 20 at the Cathedral of St. Ferdinand in Lucena City.

The Eucharistic Celebration, attended by the clergy, religious and lay faithful of the two dioceses, was presided by the Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Antonio Franco and the homily was delivered by Cebu Archbishop Ricardo J. Cardinal Vidal.

Bishop Marquez was appointed Coadjutor Bishop of Lucena by Pope John Paul II last May 4 in response to the request of Bishop Ruben T. Profugo of Lucena.  At the time of his appointment, Bishop Marquez was Bishop of Gumaca.  He was simultaneously appointed Apostolic Administrator for the same diocese effective from the day of his installation as Coadjutor Bishop of Lucena until the nomination of his successor for Gumaca.

Bishop Marquez was born on May 28, 1941 in Lopez, Quezon.  He was ordained to the priesthood on June 6, 1964 and appointed Bishop on December 15, 1984 and installed as Bishop of Gumaca on January 29, 1985.
