Congratulations, Archdiocese of Cochabamba, Bolivia (and indirectly, Diocese of La Crosse, Wisconsin)!

The Holy Father nominated as auxiliary bishop of the archdiocese of  Cochabamba (Bolivia), Father Robert Flock, a priest of the Diocese of La Crosse, Wisconsin (my neighboring diocese to the east of Winona). Rev.  Flock has been the pastor of La Santa Cruz parish and has worked extensively with the formation of the clergy in the archdiocese of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. He was born in Sparta, Wisconsin and attended the Gregorian University in Rome from 1978 to 1983. I recall him vaguely, as he was a year behind me in Rome. He was ordained a priest for La Crosse in 1982.
In 1988, he came to the archdiocese of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia and has held many posts since that time, including Vicar General.

The diocese of La Crosse rejoices in Bishop-elect Flock’s appointment. I, too, congratulate him!
