Pope Benedict XVI has appointed Detroit Auxiliary Bishop Earl Boyea as the fifth bishop of the 10-county Catholic Diocese of Lansing. Pope Benedict XVI has accepted the resignation of Bishop Carl F. Mengeling.
You should know that Bishop Boyea is a regular celebrant of the TLM at St. Josaphat in Detroit.
He will be celebrating Mass at St. Josaphat on Easter Sunday, 23 March, for the last time as Auxiliary Bishop.
Congratulations to Bishop Boyea, whom we will support with our prayers as we do all bishops.
