New Coadjutor bishop for Venice, Florida
More from the SW Florida News-Press:
Apr. 25 (CWNews.com) - The third-ranking official of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, Msgr. Frank Dewane, has been appointed Bishop of Venice, Florida.
The Vatican has not named a replacement for the American priest, who has served as undersecretary of the Pontifical Council since 2002. His departure is likely to stimulate new speculation about a possible "consolidation" of offices in the Roman Curia.
The Diocese of Venice will announce at noon today a Coadjutor Bishop, who will work side-by-side with Bishop John Nevins until his retirement in early 2007.
The Coadjutor eventually will become the new bishop of the 250,000 Catholics in the 10-county diocese. His [name] is Monsignor Frank J. Dewane, 56, ordained in Green Bay, Wis. at the age of 38. [More]
