New bishop in Evansville

Yesterday saw the ordination and installation of the new bishop of Evansville, Indiana.

Bishop Charles Thompson comes from the Archdiocese of Louisville, where he had served as Vicar General and pastor for several years. He had just been named rector of the Cathedral when this announcement came through.

The ordination was held at Roberts Stadium. 6,000+ folks turned out for it!

Bp. Thompson has lots of work to do…let’s pray for him!
