New Bishop in Evansville

Bishop Thompson prior to his episcopal consecration

Most Reverend Charles C. Thompson, appointed by Pope Benedict XVI to become the fifth Catholic bishop of Evansville, was ordained and installed Wednesday at Roberts Stadium, becoming the pastor of some 85,000 Catholics across 12 Southwestern Indiana counties.

The Evanville Courier & Press reported that Bishop Thompson is an energetic 50-year-old prelate with a heart for youth and  a keen interest in vocations and Catholic education. Our newest American bishop is certainly in our prayers.
