Welcome, Archbishop Vigneron

The Diocese of Detroit has received the good news that Bishop Allen Vigneron, of Oakland, California, has been appointed Archbishop of Detroit. He is replacing Cardinal Maida who asked to retire 2 years ago.

AMP has posted several good links on the Michigan native's move back home.

As Thomas Peters points out, it's especially good news for the Sacred Heart seminary, where Abp Vigneron has served as rector. Our parish (St. Ignatius) in the Cayman Islands has a seminarian there currently, and since the departure of Bishop Quinn we have been anxiously awaiting this appointment.

Probably unknown to most , the Cayman Islands is under the administration of Detroit as a 'missio', so we are pleased to have Bishop Flores and Abp. Vigneron as our Shepherds in Christ.
