Most Reverend Andrew H. Cozzens serves as auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis.

A native of Denver, Bishop Cozzens is the youngest of three children. He graduated from Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, where he experienced a deepening of the faith through the Catholic Charismatic Renewal. During a period of discernment after college, Bishop Cozzens served as a travelling missionary to young people around the country with Twin Cities-based NET Ministries. He then joined the Companions of Christ in Saint Paul and worked for Saint Paul’s Outreach leading college Bible study groups.

After his year of discernment he was accepted into the Saint Paul Seminary. Four years later, in 1997, he was ordained to the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. He served as parochial vicar at the Cathedral of Saint Paul and then Faribault Catholic Community (now Divine Mercy) before being sent to Rome for doctoral studies. Upon his return to Minnesota, Bishop Cozzens began service as an instructor at the Saint Paul Seminary.

On October 11, 2013, Pope Francis appointed him as auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. Bishop Cozzens’ ordination to the Episcopacy took place December 9, 2013, on the transferred Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, at the Saint Paul Cathedral.

About the Summit

This year the Duc in Altum (DIA) Schools Collaborative will host the 5th Annual DIA Schools Summit at Providence Academy in Plymouth, Minnesota. This is one of the most exciting new ventures to take place in the arena of Catholic school management and the formation of educators.

The DIA Schools Collaborative is dedicated to promoting sound Catholic identity and commitment to a robust catechetical approach that meets young people where they are, and then sends them out with the tools necessary to tackle a challenging contemporary culture. For the past four years, the Formation Summit has convened administrators, theology instructors and campus ministers to exchange exciting ideas and best practices for fostering a dynamic environment of evangelization that fosters authentic friendship with Jesus and a love for His Church in Catholic education institutions.

I wholeheartedly endorse this fresh endeavor within the Church for the cultivation of academic and spiritual excellence, combined with Magisterial fidelity. I hope to see this initiative expand and grow so that many more young people in our Catholic schools can reap the benefits of this effort to renew our Catholic Schools.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

The Most Reverend Andrew H Cozzens, STD, DD
Auxiliary Bishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis
