Great meeting today in preparation for the installation of the Most Rev. William Patrick Callahan, O.F.M. Conv., the tenth bishop of La Crosse. If you can make it, Evening Prayer at St. Joseph the Workman Cathedral is open to the public. It begins at 7:00 pm. A short reception follows.

If you couldn't snag a ticket for the installation it will be on WKBT-TV 8 (La Crosse), WXOW-TV 18/19 (La Crosse / Eau Claire), EWTN, and live streamed on the internet (Diocese of La Crosse, WKBT, WXOW). I will be doing "color commentary" for WKBT along with Mike Thompson and Martha Koloski. If you can't be at the Cathedral, tune in!

After the Mass there will be a reception at the La Crosse Center which is open to the public. Come on down and shake hands with our new bishop!

To learn more about him go to our diocesan web-site.

As a dean of the diocese, I've had the privilege of meeting and dining with Bishop Callahan already. I've also been in contact with a couple of friends who have had the opportunity to spend LOTS of time with him (one even lived with him). Everything I have heard makes me VERY excited for the future of our diocese.
