Vatican Appoints Three Auxiliary Bishops For Archdiocese of Chicago
Today, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis has appointed three new auxiliary bishops for the Archdiocese of Chicago: Bishops-elect Kevin M. Birmingham, Jeffrey S. Grob and Robert J. Lombardo, CFR.
Bishop-elect Grob — whom Father Arthur served with while Judicial Vicar of the Marriage Tribunal of the Archdiocese of Chicago — will serve as the episcopal vicar of Vicariate I, which includes Our Lady of the Wayside Parish.
“Bishop-elect Grob’s appointment is great news for our Archdiocese, our Vicariate and for Our Lady of the Wayside,” father Arthur shared [note: with a big smile] following 8:30 am mass today. “I would like to Congratulate him and Bishops-elect Birmingham and Lombardo on their appointments, and thank our Holy Father for his great gift to our Archdiocese,” he added.
