There probably won't be anybody from St. Louis there, so you'll be sure to be able to elbow aside some of your fellow Minnesotans. For those of you who have been sleeping, Saginaw's Bishop Robert Carlson, former auxiliary in St. Paul and Minneapolis and former bishop of Sioux Falls, was appointed by His Holiness yesterday to be the Archbishop of St. Louis replacing Archbishop Raymond Burke, former Bishop of La Crosse, now in Rome. Whew! The rank comes automatically with the appointment but the installation won't be for another month or so.
Archbishop Carlson's appearance has been confirmed. We haven't lost him yet.
Bishop Archbishop Robert Carlson will be the Keynote Speaker at the 13th Annual Catholic Servant Spring Benefit Banquet, Monday, April 27th. The event will be held in Rowan Hall at St. Helena Catholic Church, 3204 East 43rd Street. The evening begins at 6:00 P.M. with a social/silent auction, followed by a catered dinner and program. Tickets are $100. Call 763-502-0792 to register by April 23rd.
