On Oct. 9, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called a Gérald Caussé to be the new Presiding Bishop and he will be responsible for the faith’s finances.
Bishop Caussé filled the vacancy leaved by Elder Gary E. Stevenson, who was called to be a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.
Bishop Caussé is 52 years old and was born in France, and he previously served as a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy and as a counselor in the Europe Area Presidency.
“Each member of the Presiding Bishopric is an ordained bishop and a general authority of the church who goes out on assignments,” said Keith McMullin, who served as a counselor in the Presiding Bishopric from 1995 to 2012. “As do all general authorities, to officiate in stake conferences, to teach members of the church and to handle the various ecclesiastical administrative affairs, they are called upon to handle.”
Bishop Dean M. Davies is Bishop Caussé’s first counselor, and Bishop W. Christopher Waddell is his second counselor.
Together they will be responsible for the temporal affairs of the Church, including the humanitarian programs all around the world.
