Welcome to Edgar Moreira da Cunha, D.S.V

At this morning's Mass, the feast of St. Thomas, Father Steve announced the Diocese of Springfield's new bishop, Edgar Moreira da Cunha, D.S.V.   Bishop George Coleman has announced his retirement.  Bishop elect Cunha is an auxiliary bishop in the diocese of Newark, NJ.  All we know of him was that he was born in Brazil.  Hopefully, he speaks Portuguese, which the parishioners, being of Cape Verdean ancestry, will appreciate.

Many blessings prayed for Bishop Coleman.  May he enjoy his retirement.

 Isn't it appropriate that on the feast of one of the first bishops, one of his successors was announced?
