Bishops Who Blog, Post and PodCast

The lumbering Roman Catholic Church is slowly, under the guidance of 85 year old Pope Benedict XVI, moving into the 21st Century.

And already 26 American bishops, including our own Archbishop John Nienstedt, are using computers to communicate with their flocks.

Countless priests are doing so, also.

The Aggie Catholic blog (Texas A&M) and the Twin Cities' Catholic Servant web page have put together a list of those bishops and how they are communicating electronically.


Archbishop Timothy Dolan - New York
Sean Cardinal O'Malley - Boston
Roger Cardinal Mahoney - LA
Bishop Kevin Farrell - Dallas
Bishop Oscar Cantu - San Antonio
Bishop Robert Lynch - St. Petersburg
Bishop William Lori - Bridgeport
Bishop Joseph Cistone - Saginaw
Bishop Paul Etienne - Cheyenne
Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio - Brooklyn
Bishop Richard Stika - Knoxville
Bishop Edward Kmiec - Buffalo
Bishop Kevin Vann - Fort Worth
Bishop Christopher Coyne - Indianapolis


Francis Cardinal George - Chicago
Archbishop John Nienstedt - St. Paul and Minneapolis
Bishop Howard Hubbard - Albany
Bishop John Brungardt - Dodge City
Bishop Matthew Clark - Rochester
Bishop Joseph Latino - Jackson
Bishop George Leo Thomas - Helena
Bishop David Ricken - Green Bay
Bishop Samuel Aquila - Fargo


Bishop Thomas Olmsted - Phoenix
Bishop Daniel Jenky - Peoria
Bishop Patrick Dunn - Auckland, New Zealand
Bishop Christopher Coyne - Indianapolis

I'll let the Aggies and the Catholic Seervant keep up the bishops' list.

Let's see how many of you can help me with the names of priests from the Upper Midwest who are similarly active. Without looking much, I know of the following:


@FatherGJ, Father Nels Gjengdahl, St. John Neumann, Eagan


Father George Welzbacher, St. John of St. Paul

National Clerical Bloggers, Tweeters, etc.

Father John Zuhlsdorf, "Father Z", What the Prayer Really Says

@Abp_Carlson, Archbishop Robert Carlson, St. Louis

@FrRobertBarron, Father Robert Barron, Mundelein Seminary
