A wonderful day for the Diocese right next to mine and just across the state border. The close knit Catholic Diocese of Tyler Texas that could as some folks call it got their new Bishop installed yesterday. That being a the former Vicar General Joseph E. Strickland a native of the area which in itself is a rarity for a Bishop pick by the Holy See. The Tyler Telegraph has the story here . There are two photo galleries here and here .
Rocco Palmo at Whispers in the Loggia has a good run down of the events yesterday plus some video excerpts of key parts of the service including remarks by both Bishop Strickland and. Cardinal Dinardo.
You can follow the new Bishop of Tyler also at his blog. HE USES BLOGSPOT just like a lot of us poor mere mortals too !!
