Statement Regarding Bishop-elect Michel Mulloy

From Archbishop Bernard A. Hebda: 

It is with great joy and gratitude to Pope Francis that I congratulate Bishop-elect Michel Mulloy on his appointment as the next bishop of the Diocese of Duluth. I very much look forward to collaborating with him as he joins the bishops of our state.  I have come to know him in his great work as Diocesan Administrator of the Diocese of Rapid City and am confident that he will be a faithful servant and shepherd to the people of northeastern Minnesota, building on the ministry of Bishop Paul Sirba. We are proud to count Bishop-elect Mulloy as an alumnus of The Saint Paul Seminary. Please join me in praying in this time of transition for Bishop-elect Mulloy as well as for the faithful of the Dioceses of Duluth and Rapid City.
