S.F. Argus Leader: New Bishop for Diocese

A lawyer who joined the Roman Catholic Church at the age of 39 has been named the eighth bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls.

Pope Benedict XVI has named Madison, Wis., priest Monsignor Paul J. Swain as the eighth bishop of the Diocese of Sioux Falls.

“I am honored and humbled to be named by Pope Benedict who has set forth such an uplifting yet challenging call in his first encyclical, homilies, and meditations to live the vocation of love in its deepest sense,” said Swain, 62.

He will be introduced to the people of the Diocese of Sioux Falls at a press conference at 10 a.m. today at the Catholic Pastoral Center, 523 N. Duluth Ave.
