Musical chairs of episcopal appointments

 |  NCR Today

Over on the the USCCB Media Blog, is a run-down of recent episcopal appointments and anticipated resignations. It begins:

This morning's appointment of Milwaukee auxiliary Bishop William Callahan, OFM Conv., as the new bishop of La Crosse, Wisconsin, completes a game of episcopal musical chairs that was set into motion in early 2009 with the appointment of then-Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy Dolan to New York.

Nationwide, four dioceses are without bishop ordinaries.
