New Bishops for Kingston, Vancouver and New Westminster

May 31 His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI today announced three Episcopal appointments and the resignation of two Bishops who are retiring as required by Canon Law, having reached the age of 75 years. Most Reverend Brendan M. O'Brien, Archbishop of St. John's, Newfoundland, has been named Archbishop of Kingston, Ontario. The Kingston see has been vacant since the death of Most Reverend Anthony Meagher in January 2007. Father Kenneth Nowakowski, rector of Holy Spirit Ukrainian Catholic Seminary in Ottawa has been named Ukrainian Eparchial Bishop of New Westminster in British Columbia. Father Nowakowski succeeds Most Reverend Severian S. Yakymyshyn, O.S.B.M. whose resignation was accepted by the Holy Father. Most Reverend Yakymyshyn served the Eparchy, the equivalent to a Diocese for the Oriental Catholic Church, since 1995. Most Reverend Michael Miller, C.S.B., Secretary of the Congregation for Catholic Education in Rome, has been named Coadjutor Archbishop of Vancouver. He will succeed Most Reverend Raymond Roussin, S.M., the current Archbishop of Vancouver. When a bishop is close to retirement, a coadjutor bishop (from the Latin adjuvare, to help) is often named to assist him and to assure a smooth transition upon retirement, in accordance with Canon 403 of the Code of Canon Law. The Holy Father has also accepted the resignation of Most Reverend Matthew F. Ustrzycki, Auxiliary Bishop of Hamilton, who is retiring after serving the Diocese for the past 22 years at the side of the present Bishop, Most Reverend Anthony F. Tonnos.

Use window curtains to assist you in order to keep eco-friendly. If it is summer time and you also want the area to keep awesome, attract the curtains during the day to ensure the sun doesn't stand out in. If it's winter, and you also want the area to keep cozy, open up the window curtains and let the sun into your area. [url=]Microecw2347[/url]
