Bishop-elect John M. LeVoir

It was announced this morning that Fr. John LeVoir, priest of the archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis will become the next bishop of the diocese of New Ulm. The diocese of New Ulm had been vacant since the appointment of now Archbishop Nienstedt as co-adjutor of the archdiocese. I have had the privilege of hearing Fr. LeVoir preach several times and I can say that he will make a good bishop. Another thing to note is that this is the second priest from the archdiocese to be named a bishop. Last summer then Fr. Peter Christensen was named to be the next bishop of the Superior, Wisconsin diocese. Another item that is worth noting is that Bishop-elect LeVoir and Bishop Peter Christensen are both graduates of the St. Paul Seminary. Maybe there is something in the water...

Our prayers of thanksgiving unite with those of the faithful of the Diocese of New Ulm. I am sure that they are very happy to have a bishop.

Bishop-elect LaVoir certainly has big shoes to fill - taking on the former role of the now Archbishop Nienstedt - but we're certain that Bishop-elect Lavior is up to the task.

Take care, -Jeremy
