Most Reverend Robert M. Coerver was ordained a bishop on November 21, 2016 at Christ the King Cathedral in Lubbock and installed as the third Bishop of Lubbock.
He holds a Licentiate in Spiritual Theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome and a Masters Degree in Counseling and Guidance from Texas A&M University Commerce (formerly East Texas State University).

His episcopal motto is Suscipe Domine, the first words of his favorite daily prayer from The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola:
Take Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess. Thou hast given all to me. To Thee, O lord, I return it. All is Thine, dispose of it wholly according to Thy will. Give me Thy love and thy grace, for this is sufficient for me.
