Habemus Episcopi!

I am happy to relay the news that the Holy Father has named two new auxiliary bishops here in the Archdiocese of Detroit. The press release, from the Archdiocese of Detroit, states:

"Pope Benedict XVI has named two local priests, Monsignor Donald Hanchon and Father Michael Byrnes, to be auxiliary bishops for the Archdiocese of Detroit. Bishop-designates Hanchon and Byrnes will be ordained as the archdiocese's 26th and 27th auxiliary bishops, respectively, on May 5 at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit. Auxiliary bishops aid the archbishop in the pastoral care of the archdiocese."

More on this, see the article by the Michigan Catholic.
