Francis Ignatius Malone, a native of Philadelphia, PA, was ordained a priest on May 21, 1977, for the Diocese of Little Rock, AR.  In 1998, he was conferred Prelate of Honor to His Holiness with the title of Reverend Monsignor and in 2010, he was named Protonotary Apostolic.  He was called to the order of bishop on November 19, 2019, for service in North Louisiana.  On January 28, 2020, he was ordained and installed as the third Bishop of the Diocese of Shreveport.

Bishop Malone attended Holy Trinity Seminary from 1969 to 1977 and also studied at The Catholic University of America where he received his License in Canon Law in 1989.  In addition, he studied Spanish at Ideal, Cuernavaca, Mexico in 2010.

From 1986 to 1987, he served as Vice-Rector at Holy Trinity Seminary.  During his active ministry as a priest and prior to his appointment as diocesan bishop, Bishop Malone served the Church in Arkansas in many different ways as a priest and Chancery official, including chaplain, Vicar Forane, Judicial Vicar, Chancellor, Vicar General, and as a member of the Clergy Personnel Board, the Presbyteral Council, the Diocesan Finance Council and the Clergy Welfare Committee, as well as a member of the College of Consultors.

Bishop Malone presently serves as a member of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Louisiana Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Louisiana Interchurch Conference.  He is a trustee to Notre Dame Seminary, New Orleans and St. Joseph Seminary, Covington.  He also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of St. Francis Medical Center, Monroe, LA.  He is a member of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, Knight Commander with Star, and has also been honored with the title of Clergy Knight Commander of the Order of the Fleur de Lis.

“Holy Trinity Seminary represents the future of the Catholic Church. Developing our seminarians to become shepherds who deeply care for the flock is an enormous task that deserves our full support to achieve this mission. We need to share the work of HTS with others so they too can understand the importance of this critical institution driving priestly formation and ultimately the faith of our brothers and sisters.”
