Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle will serve as the principal consecrator while Archbishop Socrates Villegas of Lingayen-Dagupan and Bishop Mylo Vergara of Pasig will serve as co-consecrators.

Bishop Gaa's appointment was made after His Holiness Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Bishop Antonio Tobias who has been serving as apostolic administrator until Bishop Gaa's installation.

Bishop Gaa was ordained priest in 2000 for the Archdiocese of Manila. 

In 2008, he became rector of the Holy Apostles Senior Seminary and member of the presbyteral council of the Archdiocese of Manila. (Jheng M. Prado/RCAM-AOC)
