The Holy Father today nominated Bishop John G. Noonan bishop of the diocese of Orlando. Formerly the auxiliary bishop of Miami, he was born in Ireland. He emigrated to the United States after beginning his college studies, eventually studying at Fordham, Florida Atlantic University, St. John Vianney college seminary in Miami and St. Vincent de Paul seminary in Boynton Beach, Florida. He was ordained priest for the diocese of Miami and named auxiliary there in 1983.
May God bless his ministry!
