This is pretty interesting:
Bishop Schneider had been serving as Auxiliary Bishop of Karaganda.
It is not often that an auxiliary bishop is moved to be auxiliary bishop of a different diocese. Even to the metropolitan see.
Bp. Schneider gets around. It might be easier to get around from Astana, rather than from Karaganda.
And as an auxiliary, without the obligation of the administration of a diocese, he can speak about many things in many places.
