The Archbishop of Newark presides from the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark.
The Archdiocese is currently led by Archbishop John J. Myers. Myers is metropolitan for all of the New Jersey dioceses, the others of which are the Diocese of Camden, the Diocese of Metuchen, the Diocese of Paterson and the Diocese of Trenton.
On Tuesday, September 24, 2013, Pope Francis appointed Bishop Bernard Hebda, until then the fourth Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Gaylord, in Gaylord, Michigan, as Coadjutor Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark, meaning that when Archbishop Myers, 72, retires, resigns, or dies, Archbishop Hebda would immediately succeed him as Archbishop of Newark. Archbishop Myers is nearing retirement age, and has been heavily criticized because of some cases of sexual abuse that occurred while he was in Peoria and then in Newark, though it was not clear whether that was behind the decision.
