The German Bishops’ Conference has appointed suffragan Dr. Dr. Anton Losinger from the Diocese of Augsburg as the new Bishop’s Commissioner for KAAD at its Autumn Plenary Assembly 2021.

Dr. Dr. Losinger, who has been a member of Commission VIII for Science and Culture of the German Bishops’ Conference since 2015, will succeed suffragan Wilfried Theising, who has held this office since 2013.

Suffragan Losinger studied Catholic theology and philosophy as well as economics at the University of Augsburg and was ordained a priest in 1983. He was awarded a doctorate in theology in 1988 and a doctorate in political science five years later. In 2000, he was appointed suffragan of Augsburg by Pope John Paul II.

KAAD warmly welcomes suffragan Dr. Dr. Losinger as Bishop’s Commissioner and as a “born member” of KAAD e. V. and looks forward to a fruitful cooperation.
