Congratulations, Diocese of Joliet

The Holy Father today appointed Bishop Robert Conlon bishop of Joliet in Illinois. Bishop Conlon has been the bishop of Steubenville.

The diocese of Joliet had been governed by now Archbishop J. Peter Sartain of Seattle. Archbishop Sartain and I studied together at the North American College in the late 1970s.

Bishop Conlon was ordained priest for the diocese of Cincinnati in 1977 and was appointed bishop of Stuebenville in 2002. He was ordained bishop on August 6 of that year.

Congratulations, diocese of Joliet!
