Archbishop Chaput to Philadephia

Pope Benedict has accepted the retirement of Cardinal Rigali of Philadelphia and has named Archbishop Charles Chaput to succeed him.
We used some of Archbishop Chaput’s writings and quotes in class.  Prior to Philadelphia, Archbishop Chaput served as the Archbishop of Denver; he is the author of the book “Render unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life”
And for those interested here is how a new Bishop is selected: USCCB - Appointing Bishops

Liking Catholicism on Facebook

Many Catholic Bishops, authors, and groups utilize facebook as a means of communication.  If you go to their facebook page and “like” them you will receive information and news in your facebook news feed as it becomes available.
