ALGER, Algeria, MAY 26, 2008 ( Benedict XVI appointed Father Ghaleb Moussa Abdalla Bader of the clergy of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem as the Metropolitan Archbishop of Algeria.

Archbishop-designate Bader, 56, succeeds Archbishop Henri Teissier, 78.

The new archbishop brings with him ample experience in interreligious dialogue with Islam.

Ghaleb Moussa Abdalla Bader was born in 1951 in Jordan. He was ordained in 1975.

In 1979, he completed a first doctorate in civil law at the University of Damascus and in the 1980s he completed two more doctorates in Rome, one in philosophy and one in canon law, at the Pontifical Lateran University. He participated in the Arabic translation of the Code of Canon Law.

From 1996 to 2001 he was an advisor to the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.

He has been president of the Ecclesiastical Tribunal for First Instance in Amman since 1992.

Algeria is almost entirely Sunni Muslim, which is the state's official religion. Christians and Jews combined are less than 1% of the population.
