Timothy Paul Andrew Broglio (born December 22, 1951) is an American prelate of the Roman Catholic Church. He currently serves as Archbishop for the Military Services, USA.


Timothy Broglio was born in Cleveland Heights, Ohio and attended Saint Ignatius High School in Cleveland, OH. After graduating from high school, Broglio attended Boston College where he obtained a A.B. in classics.

He entered the Pontifical Gregorian University after graduating from college and earned a S.T.B. Broglio was ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Cleveland by Cardinal Sergio Pignedoli on May 19, 1977. Broglio then served as an associate pastor at St. Margaret Mary Parish, in South Euclid, Ohio,[1] later remarking that the assignment was “the best two years of [his] life”.[2]

Returning to Rome in 1979, he studied at the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy and graduated in 1983; He also earned his J.C.D. from the Gregorian, and joined the Vatican’s diplomatic corps. After serving as secretary for the nunciatures to the Ivory Coast (1983-1987) and to Paraguay (1987-1990), Broglio worked at the Vatican Secretariat of State as desk officer for Central America and then as personal secretary to Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano.

On February 27, 2001, Broglio was appointed Apostolic Nuncio to the Dominican Republic, as well as Apostolic Delegate to Puerto Rico, and Titular Archbishop of Amiternum. He received his episcopal consecration[3] on March 19 from Pope John Paul II, with Cardinals Angelo Sodano and Giovanni Battista Re serving as co-consecrators.

He is a member of the Board of Trustees of Catholic Distance University.[4]

Pope Benedict XVI named Broglio head of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA on November 19, 2007. He was installed on January 25, 2008, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Aside from his native English, Broglio is fluent in Italian, Spanish, and French.
