For 15 years Bishop Gerald Kicanas devoted his life and faith to serving the Tucson community. 

Tuesday night he walked down the aisle of St. Augustine Cathedral for the last time as bishop. 

Kicanas says during his time as bishop in Tucson he shared many great moments and others where his faith was tested. 

In the future, Kicanas says he sees himself continuing to work and help those in need. Also, lending himself to the new bishop with any help he can provide. 

Edward Weisenburger will be installed as the new bishop in a Wednesday ceremony.
