George Patrick Ziemann (September 13, 1941 – October 22, 2009) was the third Roman Catholic bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Santa Rosa in California.[1]

Born in Pasadena, California, Ziemann was ordained a Roman Catholic priest for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles on April 29, 1967. On December 23, 1986, Pope John Paul II appointed Ziemann auxiliary bishop of the Los Angeles Archdiocese and he was consecrated on February 23, 1987 by then Archbishop Roger Mahony.[2][3] On July 14, 1992, Pope John Paul II appointed Ziemann bishop of the Santa Rosa Diocese. On July 22, 1999, Ziemann resigned due to sexual and financial improprieties.[4][5][6] Bishop Ziemann died in October 2009.[7]
